Huddersfield Town fans will no doubt be wondering whether Mark Robins will come in for any players during next month’s transfer window.
The former boss who is now in charge of Scunthorpe United has reportedly drawn up a shopping list for the Iron.
Robins, who left Town after the first game of the season, has lost only one of eight League I games since being installed as Russ Wilcox’s replacement in mid-October.
Scunthorpe head for Bradford City before a Boxing Day home clash with Rochdale and a trip to Sheffield United.
Chairman Peter Swann told the club’s annual meeting that the former Rotherham United, Barnsley and Coventry City boss will get the chance to reshape the squad.
“I’ll leave that to Mark,” said Swann. “He has presented a list of players he wants to go for, and identified who we’d like to ship out too. Of course it will be down to money to a point, but Mark has done superbly and we both want to build for the future.”
The club are in talks with Isaiah Osbourne over keeping hold of the midfielder, whose current deal expires in January.
Scunthorpe hope to submit plans for a new stadium on January 7 with a view to moving in time for the start of the 2016-17 season.
They moved to their current Glanford Park base in 1988 after 89 year at the Old Show Ground.
Meanwhile Simon Grayson, Robins’ predecessor as Town boss, has told his promotion-chasing Preston North End side to target a trip to Wembley.
Scunthorpe’s League I rivals sealed a two-legged Johnstone’s Paint Trophy Northern final clash with Walsall by beating Notts County 1-0 at Meadow Lane this week.
“We will be very positive in our approach, we have got this far and we want to put in two professional performances and get to Wembley,” said Grayson, whose side are fourth ahead of their trip to Peterborough United.
“People might knock the JPT and not take it that seriously but we have. It has allowed me at times to play a few lads who hadn’t been playing and they have never once let me down.”
