We'd be ok if the season started now! - Robbo

Last updated : 22 May 2009 By Bigrich.....
With rumours of transfer targets doing the rounds, boss Mark Robins tells today's 'Tiser that hes got targets but is in no rush to sign any more.

"I won't have to do as much business this summer and if the season started tomorrow then we would be OK. I want players who will improve us and I have certain ones in mind. If I can get them, fine. If not, we'll bide our time. I'm in no rush.

"If an opportunity presents itself that we had to pay money for a player who could make us better then I would speak to the chairman, but that's the same at any football club. Like any business in the country, we are in the middle of an economic downturn. We have to be prudent and players have to be realistic."

With the club's season ticket sales starting this week, Robbo took the time to urge people to buy their tickets to help him get the players he wants; "We need people to come and watch, Some stayed away last season but how many who buy season tickets and come through the turnstyles dictates what I can spend in the transfer market." he said

"We have just come off the back of a really good season and everyone expects us to go up. We want to improve on last year and that means increasing our points tally. If we can do that then hopefully we will be there or thereabouts.

"The weight of expectation is something we have to be able to carry through the season. We have to improve and with a bit of luck and a fair wind then we will. Plans are being put in place to make sure we do that and hopefully we can hit the ground running again."

Meanwhile midfielder Mark Hudson is stalling over a new contract.
