“We’ve a couple of areas we would like to improve and we hope to do that. There’s been plenty of work behind the scenes. Hopefully, we can improve the depth. It’s clear we’ve lost a number of our full-backs.”
He further added,
“So, we’ll look at the left-back position and also for an out-and-out winger on the right side is one we will definitely look at. It was a challenging summer for us. Come January, we’ve looked at that and we hope to be able to spend wisely.”
