The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

PA­TIENCE is a virtue and Ch­ester­field boss Dean Saun­ders be­lieves play­ing the wait­ing game helped him se­cure Lee Novak on a sea­son-long loan.

Novak has joined from Birm­ing­ham and, with plenty of Football League pedi­gree, Saun­ders is con­vinced the 26-year-old could be the miss­ing piece of the puz­zle.

“I’ve been mon­i­tor­ing the sit­u­a­tion re­gard­ing Lee since the day I ar­rived here,” said Saun­ders.

“I knew I had to wait un­til af­ter the first cou­ple of games be­fore other man­agers showed their hand about their squad.

“Lee can only add to what we’ve got – he’s got a great at­ti­tude and gives us op­tions.”
