No transfer window signings says Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark

LEE CLARK is convinced his current squad have what it takes to win promotion.

LEE CLARK is convinced his current squad have what it takes to win promotion.

Ahead of tonight’s crunch League I clash at Wycombe, when victory in front of the Sky cameras would lift Town from fifth into third place, the boss said he will not be bringing in any players during the transfer window.

“I’m 100% certain and it’s a decision I have reached myself,” said Clark, who has loaned left-back Liam Ridehalgh to divisional rivals Chesterfield for the remainder of the season.

“I have said it before and I will say it again – I am very confident my current crop of players can do the business.”

Town have slipped out of the automatic promotion places after picking up only one win in six, but the manager pointed out: “This is our 50th league game since the start of 2011 and we go into it having lost only two of them.

“There have been some individual errors which have meant we have drawn rather than won certain matches, but they haven’t turned from good to average players.

“We need to get them back firing and we will do that. We have a great opportunity to get points on board and climb the table tonight and the players are ready.”

Wycombe are third-bottom after losing two on the trot, but Clark warned: “They have pace and power up top and it will be a tough game, but we are looking forward to it.”

Clark confirmed that the “wheels are in motion” for striker Robbie Simpson’s second loan move to Oldham to be made permanent.

Centre-back Nathan Clarke is also being tipped to return for another stint at Boundary Park, although he is back with Town for the time being.
