Steve Evans:
"The aim is to be promotion contenders."

Question: is there any news on the final two transfer targets?

Steve Evans:
"We're trying to sign a striker as everyone knows. I've had a long chat on the train down to see you today with a Chief Executive of another club in League One, and we're trying to take a striker from there.
But we're waiting for them to do some business. They think they've got that business done so that would be good news.
But as you know and I know in football, they're never done til they're signed. So that's very hopeful.

In the respect of the loan player, it's just a case of waiting for their manager to say he doesn't need him in their squad.

With regard to the striker, we're going to buy him. It's not fantastic money but for League Two it's a competitive sum of money. We'd like to get the kid in.
I've seen him numerous times. He's done very well where he is but the club in the league above us have serious ambitions about getting into the championship. I'm aware of who they're trying to get and if they get him, he does improve them.
So let's hope they get their man because if they do, I'm confident we'll get ours."
