Micky Adams: No window shopping for Port Vale just yet
MICKY Adams is ready to play the waiting game in the January transfer window.
The Port Vale boss says there could be movement, both in and out of the club, during the next month.
But he's happy to bide his time before deciding whether to bring in any fresh faces.
Asked about the possibility of new arrivals, Adams, whose team take on Fleetwood Town today (3pm) as leaders of League Two, said: "We'll look at it from game to game and week to week. We're top of the table, so there's not a lot wrong.
"That's not to say we're not looking to improve the squad, because we always want to do that.
"But will there be players coming through the door at the start of the window? Probably not."
However, Adams did say some players could be allowed to leave.
"I don't expect players not on the fringes of the team to be happy so there could be a couple on their way out."
Despite seeing his team top the table for the first time this season, Adams insists there is still room for improvement.
He explained: "It's great to be at the top, but we've got to understand the reasons why we're there.
"We've got there with consistent performances and by being hard to beat, sticking together and working hard. We've got to maintain that.
"I've been pleased with the contribution of individuals, but it's now up to me and my staff to get an extra five per cent out of each one for the second half of the season."
Ashley Vincent returns to the squad after recovering from the stomach bug which kept him out over Christmas, but skipper Doug Loft looks likely to miss out with a calf strain.
FANS can pay on the gate for today's visit of Fleetwood. Cash turnstiles are open in the Railway Paddock, the Railway Stand and the Family Stand.
