Dario Still Mulling Over Defensive Strengthening

Dario Still Mulling Over Defensive Strengthening

Dario is still mulling over bringing in defensive re-enforcements with the transfer window re-opening tomorrow.

The Alex have been as leaky as ever at the back this season, conceding 28 goals in the first 19 league games of the season but any potential deal will not be decided on till after the two games this Bank Holiday weekend.

There is expected to be at least one incoming defender in the coming months, with Dario eyeing up a full back and possibly a new centre back. The manager has however ruled out bringing in another club's youngsters...

He told the official website:


We are not in a financial position to have a large influx of new players coming in January but I would do something if I can find a defender who will improve us.

'I am reluctant though to bring in 18 or 19 year-olds from other clubs because we have our own here.

'If we can keep two clean-sheets in the next couple of games then we could put any deal on ice, but I'm sure we will know what we are going to do by the middle of next week.'
