Teddy Sheringham says Stevenage may not be finished in the transfer window.

The window shuts tonight (Monday) at 11pm but speaking after the defeat at York City on Saturday the Boro boss says he may have to once again dip into the market.

Sheringham lost Michael Tonge, Ronnie Henry and Offrande Zanzala to injury at the weekend, leading him to say afterwards: “With [our] injuries, it will probably prompt something.”

Stevenage have so far signed Tonge, Lee Cox, Luke Wilkinson and goalkeeper Jamie Jones on permanent deals, though the first two were already at the club on a short-term deal and on loan respectively.

Zanzala, Deimantas Petravicius, Keith Keane and Aaron O’Connor have also arrived on loan while Spurs defender Connor Ogilvie has extended his loan spell with the club until the middle of February.

Brett Williams has left for Forest Green Rovers while last week defenders Jamie McCombe and Mark Hughes both departed.

Losing the two centre-halves is also of concern, leaving Boro with just three experienced central defenders for the run-in.

“We’re looking at that situation. It’s not easy this time of year, we’ve not got the money to spend. We’re trying.”
