Gillingham boss Steve Lovell says he's happy with his squad but has options if needed

By Luke Cawdell

The transfer window has been open for more than a week but Gillingham boss Steve Lovell is in no rush to bring in reinforcements.

Apart from extending the loan of defender Connor Ogilvie, the Gills have yet to do any business.

Lovell insists he is happy with his squad, but has a list of targets up his sleeve should he need to act.

He said: “We have a lot of people coming back from injury and at the moment the squad is quite strong.

“If you are going to sign someone in the window they have to come in and get into the team and be better than what you have got. I am very happy with my squad.

“At the moment I am in no rush to do anything. There is no need to.”

Lovell has Max Ehmer and Barry Fuller back in training after injury while midfielders Dean Parrett and Billy Bingham are close to recovering from strains. Regan Charles-Cook and Brandon Hanlan are also knocking on the door of the team.

Lovell has previously said he is keen for additional firepower but wasn’t close to making any new signings in the early part of this week.

He said: “Players are coming back from injury and I have players on the bench who have played football for us in the league this year.

“I have players not on the bench who are still around the club who are waiting to come back and could be back in the next week or two.

“I am not going to go and grab someone for the sake of it. I am happy with the way they train,

their approach to everything and they are a really good bunch of professionals.

“Unless something comes along and I think ‘I need that’ or we need to do something, there is no rush.”

The transfer window is open during January and Lovell does have players who he feels could do a job for him, if required.

He said: “I have got targets, I have got people in my mind. I have a list of those I would like to get in or I can get in, or would try, should we need to.”
