'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Winds Of Change Will Sweep Through

With the season now finished, for us anyway, changes can start to be planned and up to 17 players are expected to leave this summer.

Nigel Clough is looking to reduce the numbers from 39 to 20-24.

"You can't get a settled side or a settled spirit, or anything like that by using so many players.
"We would hope that would be down to 20 to 24 next season."

"After three and a half months, we've seen enough to form opinions on who we want around for next season

"We have got a big squad but I think the lads have shown that the nucleus we have is OK and can compete at this level. So, if we can add some players to help them along and get a few fit again, we should be OK.

"If you look at who was sitting on the sidelines at Watford on Sunday - the likes of Miles Addison, Paul Green, Chris Porter, Jay McEveley and Dean Leacock - we would hope that all of those are challenging for a place along with the others we bring in.

"One of the biggest things will be to get the injured players back for the start of next season."

Most of those that are going to be out of contract are expected to leave and Claude Davis, Roy Carroll, Jordan Stewart, Martin Albrechtsen and Mile Sterjovski are among those likely to make way.
