Persuaded, no doubt, by another woeful and ineffectual display from Spillane on Tuesday - thankfully truncated early, I have it on the very best authority that we are soon to be boosted by a very popular signing.

Given that since he returned to his parent club in early January, we have not had anyone who could similarly shield the back four and anchor midfield, this has no doubt contributed hugely to our recent league displays and our consistent leaking of goals. Well Luggy has pulled the proverbial rabbit from the hat, and on Monday the original and much missed defensive midfielder will return to the club in a deal which would cover the term of the play-off finals. And of course, will be eligible for Wembley, having played and scored in an earlier round.

With Laird and Tomlin also hopefully returning shortly, does anyone now feel slightly more optimistic for the run in to the end of the season? It's a shame that it can't happen before Rotherham, but it does mean that we should have our strongest side, sadly barring Timms, for the final 10 games or so of the season to hopefully at least cement our play-off place.
