So with the transfer out we were looking to ship any of the dead wood including players who only joined us in the summer but just weren't up to standards or fit into the new formation that has been proving such a success. The big move was Martyn Waghorn who has been 2nd fiddle to Lawrence though when West Brom came in for him with that bid there was no way I could say no to it and it gives the chance to go after somebody younger.
We went for quality rather than quantity this time in the transfer window. First in is Mikey Johnston from Celtic who is long term buy and will be looking to take over from Lawrence after the summer who will probably be sold to bring in a good amount to help us reshape the team New Jack Byrne is brought in to add a bit more depth to the RW and AMC role as he can cover bother. We also brought Bakkali in on loan to cover injuries to Lawrence and Johnston.
In the league its been a great month as we only drop 2 points to Barnsley and it leaves us nicely in the play off positions and even better we have been able to leap Nottingham Forest and there will be no looking back now. Things are looking a lot brighter now after a few months ago we were sitting in 20th place and the board were considering my future with the club. In the Carabao Cup we blew it in the first leg but on the upside at least we were able to win the 2nd leg to have a bit of pride. In the FA Cup it was actually a welcome loss as without it then our players will now have a bit of time to recover between league games.
