Gaffer continues squad assessment

22 November 2013

Blades boss Nigel Clough has ruled 'major changes' to the playing squad in January as he continues to assess the talent he currently has at his disposal.

When questioned about his thoughts on one player in particular, Clough replied: "We are still assessing the squad and that is a continual process, we won't jump to any conclusions about any individual, they all deserve a fair crack of the whip.

"Jose (Baxter) didn't enjoy the best of starts when we came in, he wasn't at his best in training or when he played for the U21s, but he has got his head down and worked hard.

"Now he is really pushing for a start and he will be given the chance to impress."

Looking ahead to the re-opening of the transfer window, Clough added: "We won't make major changes in January; we aren't really in a position to do so. We have to decide the future of the loan players and take it from there.

"Our priority at the moment has to be to stay up this season and from there we can start to build for the future."

The Gaffer concluded by revealing he wants an improvement to the on-field communication in the future: "We have a few experienced heads and a good leader in Michael (Doyle), but we are encouraging everyone to be more vocal because the communication on the pitch hasn't been the best at times."
