JAN­UARY PUZ­ZLE FOR CRAIG

The Football League Paper - - CHAMPIONSHIP -

CRAIG Hignett has made no se­cret of his Jan­uary trans­fer tar­gets, but the Hartle­pool man­ager ad­mits it’s a strange month to do busi­ness.

The Pools have lost de­fend­ers Jake Car­roll, 25, to Cam­bridge and Toto Nsiala, 24, to Shrews­bury Town this month, with like-for-like re­place­ments the min­i­mum aim for a side with just one win in seven be­fore the week­end.

But Hignett, who has loaned in 22-year-old Sean Ka­vanagh from Ful­ham, ad­mits it’s go­ing to be no easy task do­ing busi­ness.

“I have a lot of man­agers will­ing to help, but I have to be care­ful. You are only al­lowed five loans.”
