Noth­ing to read into team se­lec­tion


CALVIN An­drew’s omis­sion from the match­day squad on Satur­day prompted talk on the ter­races of a move to Lin­coln City in the pipe­line –bt Keith Hill was quick to scup­per such talk.

“Re­gard­less of con­spir­acy the­o­ries, the play­ers who weren’t avail­able on Satur­day were not avail­able.

“No­body is pend­ing a move – Calvin An­drew was ill, Aaron Wil­bra­ham is in­jured, Stephen Doo­ley in­jured, Zach Clough in­jured, Joey Thomp­son in­jured.

“We’ve had a lit­tle bit of ill­ness in the build­ing and it’s hard – but there are no con­spir­acy the­o­ries go­ing on!”

Hill, who made a pointed ges­ture of sup­port to his play­ers at half time against Bur­ton in de­fi­ance at boo­ing fans, said he un­der­stood where the anger came from.

“I un­der­stand why there is so much anger,” he said. “It’s a dark day but we are look­ing for light at the end of the tun­nel and there is one, there is a spark at this club and we have to reignite it.”

On re­cruit­ment, he added: “We have sold play­ers and got good money for play­ers. David Perkins has gone to Tran­mere, Bren­dan has gone back to the US.

“So it’s left a lit­tle bit light and we went with the play­ers we had avail­able.

“We can’t panic when it comes to re­cruit­ment.”
