The Window begins to close

On his way back?
Stevie Hammell would be welcome if we can persuade Southend to release him. They turned down an initial bid of around £150 000 according to reports and it may be that some last day activity could result in the return of his familiar runs up and down the left wing. Mark McGhee said on Wednesday night, "Steven Hammell is a possibility; we are close to that one."

Motherwell fans are less sure about the reports that we are chasing Bob Malcolm. The concerns relate more to his off field antics than his role on the park. Derby might be more inclined to let him go following his drunken sleep in the middle lane of the M1 and there will be concerns about his influence on our young squad.

The reduction in our squad over the last month leaves us very exposed to suspensions and injuries and the thought that any of our first team might be targets for last minute swoops is not what we want to contemplate.

It might be an interesting day.
