THE January transfer window is traditionally more about loans and free agents rather than big money or named signings.

We've already seen Jevani Brown go to Forest Green Rovers, an interesting move with them being in and around the League Two play-offs like ourselves.

But hopefully this can open the door to some new faces coming in.

Let's be realistic and understand that top strikers who score 20-odd goals a season will not be moving around this time of year.

Their current clubs will have them tied down somewhere at the training grounds, not letting them leave.

Anyone we get in will more likely be cover for positions we are light on with injuries, namely in the left-back and right-back areas. All we can do is wait and see.

Who knows, I might be completely wrong and we do get a shock new arrival but I am not holding my breath.

Theo Robbinson will hopefully stay as he offers pace and can get in behind the defence, which is a good asset to have up the sleeve.

This weekend, it's Morecambe away and it's always a treat, a nice long car trip up to a cold North-West seaside town that is dead at this time of year.

It will be an early start and a long day but for the hardy away fans, it's just another Saturday on the footballing calendar.

Fingers crossed, we'll be warmed up with a strong performance and three points on the board.

We've now completed the busy period and the need for squad rotation, rest and recovery are hopefully over so we can start to get back on track and get the wins.

It is all well and good being unbeaten but a draw only gives the one point.

Going ten games unbeaten with draws equals ten points, whereas in the same ten-game period, winning five and losing five equals 15 points.

That said, our form is on a par with the top teams in the league and as long as we start to get wins in January and not go on our normal New Year's slump we will be fine, fingers crossed.

After a draw against Crawley at home, we travelled the short hop to Stevenage last Saturday to see if the U’s could extend their unbeaten run with another three points.

Unfortunately although we came away with the draw and remain unbeaten, there was nothing other than frustration in the away end.

Stevenage went down to ten men after a very poor tackle straight out of the book of unsporting tricks which luckily they did not get away with.

After that we threw everything at them but all in vain.

I know their goalkeeper had a blinder but with the amount of attack-minded players on the pitch we should have scored.

Also, it speaks volumes that Tom Eastman our tall centre-back was voted as man of the match after calmly breaking up a number of their swift counter-attacks.

To those fellow U's fans going up to Morecambe to support the lads - see you there.
