BORO boss Graham Westley said there is money available should he want to bring new faces to Boro in January, but he is happy to give his current squad the opportunity to play for places.

"Others have decided what they've got isn't good enough. I don't feel that way about our squad.

"Sides grow and teams evolve across the season. I think you've got to give your players a chance to develop and improve.

"We have got four or five players missing - Griffin our top goalscorer, Mitchell (Cole) wasn't out there, (Andy) Drury wasn't out there, (Mark) Roberts the skipper, Lawrie (Wilson) of course on a long termer.

"With them back in and with the lads we've got here there's no need to run desperately into the transfer market. If we need to strengthen and give ourselves a bit of cover then there's going to be a small amount of funds available.

"We're not going to be big movers in the market but that's not a big worry for me."
