ACCRINGTON Stanley boss John Coleman is bracing himself for a quiet transfer deadline day.

The Reds chief, whose side drew 0-0 at Gillingham in League One on Tuesday night, have already strengthened this month.

Midfielder Dan Barlaser, suspended for the Gills trip, extended his loan spell from Newcastle United until the end of the season while Liam Gibson joined on loan from the Magpies.

Defender Janoi Donacien returned to the Reds from Ipswich on loan while strikers Luke Armstrong and Paul Smyth have both completed temporary Wham Stadium moves this month. The only permanent addition has been goalkeeper Dimi Evtimov who penned an 18-month contract at Stanley.

On the potential for more business, Coleman, speaking after the draw at Priestfield, said: "I have done most of my business early so I can't see myself bringing anybody in, possibly one or two."

The Reds have seen Connor Hall, Michael Ihiekwe, Matty Platt, Nick Anderton, Luke Charman and Connor Ripley leave the club this month. All six had spent the first half of the season on loan at Stanley.
