Cox compliments returning Moore

2 December 2013

Manager Paul Cox believes Micky Moore will add ‘an extra dimension’ to our coaching team following his first session with the players today.

Before our Sky Bet League Two with Morecambe on Saturday, we confirmed that the 40-year-old had re-joined us in the position of first team coach.

Moore, who was our assistant manager in the 2011/12 season, has most recently been working at Skrill Premier side Nuneaton Town.

“Since Micky left us 18 months ago, I’ve kept in contact with him,” said our boss.

“We did well last season, but Micky has also done a good job as assistant manager/first team coach at Nuneaton Town and he’ll give us an extra dimension on the coaching field.

“What Micky will do is to stick to his strengths. As a coach he enjoys working with players from morning through to the evening and he’ll help to improve individuals.

“But more than anything [he will work on] structure within the 11. There have been certain scenarios within our shape that I’ve not been too happy with over the last month or so.

“Micky is good at what he does. He had his first session with the players today and it was a positive session.”

Meanwhile, playmaker Chris Clements, who was substituted due to a back injury on Saturday, is expected to resume training tomorrow.

“Clemmo will be fit for training tomorrow and he just needed another 24 hours rest today,” said Cox.

“(Lee) Stevenson’s gone for a scan on his calf and he could be a doubt for Saturday‘s match at Oldham, but we’re slowly getting players back [from injury].

“(Louis) Briscoe started back training today, so that’s a massive positive. (Ryan) Tafazolli is getting stronger every week and we’re slowly getting back to having a full squad.”
