"The new chairman has come in and he's doing wonders there but he seems to be swimming against the tide, people should be helping and not hindering the football club.
Coughlan, who spent just one season with Mark Robins' men, admits that the future is unclear for his former club. "I don't know what's going to happen to them over the next couple of weeks but it's worrying times and a case of watch this space," Coughlan added.
Meanwhile, the former Sheffield Wednesday and Plymouth defender is looking forward to his new start at the Prostar Stadium. "I like winning, whether that is in training or in games. It's the way I've been brought up and I'm hoping to be successful here."
