Trans­fer mar­ket not the an­swer

Middleton Guardian - - SPORT -

DOWN to the bare bones he may be – but Keith Hill will stick with his prin­ci­ples and avoid press­ing the panic but­ton ahead of the trans­fer win­dow clos­ing shut this week.

In­juries and ill­ness have dec­i­mated the squad with the sea­son still in its in­fancy.

But Dale boss Hill does not be­lieve in throw­ing money at prob­lems and the present prob­lems he’s faced with are no ex­cep­tion.

‘I am happy to go with these play­ers re­gard­less of how des­per­ate it gets’

“I be­lieve in this squad of play­ers and I am happy to go with this squad of play­ers re­gard­less of how des­per­ate it could be as the trans­fer win­dow closes,” he said.

“I don’t think the cheque­book is the an­swer, I think we have the an­swer in the play­ers, whether it’s Aaron Mor­ley, whether it’s Matty Gil­lam, Dan Ad­shead.

“I’m a firm be­liever in giv­ing play­ers op­por­tu­ni­ties, as long as they have the com­mit­ment, de­sire, de­ter­mi­na­tion and win­ning ap­pli­ca­tion.

“They showed that against Bury but we were just miss­ing one or two op­por­tu­ni­ties in the sec­ond half.”
