A QUIET January has seen no new faces join or depart the Ray Mac as the midway point in the transfer window approaches.

But Salisbury City manager Mikey Harris sees no need for change at a time when key players are making their return from the sideline.

“Nothing’s going on at the minute,” he admitted.

“It’s been very quiet as there’s been no movement inwards or outwards. We’ve some exciting, strong and attacking players coming back from injury and I’m confident in the group of players I have.”

Robbie Sinclair and Elliott Frear returned at the Aggborough, with Jamie White getting a run out. Dan Fitchett is near full fitness and is back in training with Brian Dutton, who suffered in recent weeks with an Achilles injury.

Harris opted for the same squad to play Kidderminster that beat Edgar Davids’ Barnet on December 28, but the scope of availabilities on offer, and defeat, means a few alterations could be in order.

“I’ve quite a few options now,” he added. “I wanted to give the team a chance to replicate their recent wins, which I thought was fully deserved. But some of the players didn’t take that opportunity and that’s something I’ll address this week.”

Tomorrow's opposition is 23rd placed Dartford (3pm), who have been struggling this season but are fresh from chalking their first point since October at Welling United on Friday night.

And with boss Tony Burman making a few loan signings, Harris believes they have transformed since City smashed them in the FA Cup.

“Dartford are a completely different team now.”

“They’ve certainly strengthened with the loan signings. Tony is someone I know well and is a good bloke.

“They’ve had a few difficult results which he’ll look to turn around.

“However, we know what we are capable of and I’m looking for a reaction.”

  • City have rearranged their home clash with Nuneaton Town on Tuesday, January 28 for Saturday, February 1 due to Tamworth’s progression in the FA Trophy.
