Boro boss Graham Westley has revealed he is in the process of conducting an overhaul of his squad and has placed midfielders Daryl McMahon and John Martin on the transfer list.

A disappointing return of one point out of the last nine available in the league has convinced Westley that changes need to be made and McMahon and Martin have been told they should look for a new club.

"I've got to start making decisions who I'm going to give shirts to in the long term really," Westley told the Comet.

"Neither John nor Daryl are going to be happy sitting on the bench and it would be better for them if they could go and find some first team football elsewhere."
