02 Dec McGhee: No major surgery required at Motherwell
Motherwell boss Mark McGhee says there won’t be a need for a massive overhaul of players in January as the club attempt to stave off a relegation play-off battle.
McGhee took over the reins at the Steelmen in October but it hasn’t been an easy start with just one win in his opening six games, leaving the Motherwell languishing in the relegation play-off spot.
However, an impressive performance in the 2-2 draw with Hearts at the weekend was cause for optimism for McGhee that the Motherwell squad doesn’t need major surgery in January.
Asked if he could get certain players in the transfer window, he told Peter and Roughie’s Football Show: “It’s not as simple as that. We have a big squad as it is, if I want to make changes it will involve a little bit coming and going as well as adding players.
“I won’t be adding three or four players to the squad already existing but if I can swap some of it around I may do that.
“But equally we had a team that did exceptionally well on Saturday and showed that we are good enough to win games in this division so, if we can get them playing consistently, there might not need to panic and run out and get too many players.”
