HUDDERSFIELD Town could face a host of new Swindon signings after Robins boss Danny Wilson said new faces would be arriving 'imminently'.
Wilson only added one player to his squad during January in the form of striker Vincent Pericard, and the Swindon Town boss revealed he was confident of snapping up a handful of temporary acquisitions to bolster the club’s bid for promotion from League One.
They are currently in fifth on 52 points after last night's 4-2 win over Oldham.
“Some players will definitely be coming in. We don’t have anything after this window so we have to make sure that we do bring someone in,” said Wilson.
The former Barnsley and Sheffield Wednesday manager confirmed he has already made preliminary inquiries for several players, and is currently waiting on replies.
And Wilson was optimistic the new additions would arrive in time for the trip to the Galpharm on Saturday, although he remained adamant he would not make panic signings.
Wilson refused to reveal most of the names of players he was targeting, but confirmed an approach had been made for winger Matt Ritchie, who is currently plying his trade for beleaguered Premier League side Portsmouth.
“He’s one of them, but again they may have the same sort of problem we have,” said Wilson.
“They’ve got no players at Portsmouth, so whether they’ll let them out at this moment in time is arguable.
“We’re just waiting for answers to come back.”
