Game on Matthew Spring

After some suggestions that tomorrow's home game might fall victim to the cold weather, it has been given the go-ahead. Cynics had been saying that our cold weather pitch covering had suffered a strategic split so the game could be postponed until we are better shape to play it. As it is, we might just be in better shape following this afternoon's signing of midfielder Matthew Spring from Luton Town on an 18 month contract.

With Nicky Bailey suspended for tomorrow's game Spring will provide some options although a full debut in his first session with his new colleagues might be asking a bit much. Spring is 29 and has spent much of his career at Luton in two spells but has also played for Watford and Leeds. He was on loan at Sheffield United up until yesterday where he made 11 appearances. The official site says he has joined on an undisclosed fee, which I assume is minimal as he doesn't appear to have commanded more than £300,000 during his career.
