MORTON manager Davie Irons is prepared to play a waiting game in order to make sure he gets the right players in to Cappielow to prepare for next season.

And he revealed that perhaps only two new faces would be coming in to bolster the existing squad. He told the Telegraph: 'We will have a reduced squad this year. Any incoming players have to be the right ones.

'We won"t be running a reserve team again and will have a squad of 19 in total. It"s going to be tight. The majority of that squad will be filled by players who are currently under contract.

'We need to improve the squad, that"s obvious, but we have to make sure they are of the right quality to make a difference.

'There may be only a couple of new faces, but there"s plenty of time. The SPL isn"t finished yet and there will be a lot of players on the market.

'I"ve already been approached by players but, as I say, we want to make sure we get the right ones.' Meanwhile young striker Brian Graham will be returning to Cappielow after his loan stint at East Stirlingshire. The manager said: 'He scored some goals there [at East Stirling]. I don"t know if he will be playing for us. We will have to see what he is like when he comes back to full time training.' Defender David MacGregor has also got a chance to get back to fitness. Irons commented: 'David"s been given an extension of his contract to the end of July to allow him to have an operation. He will have to prove his fitness.

'He"s had a bad run of injuries and this is his last chance to show he can recover.' On the subject of pre-season preparation, Irons said: 'Hopefully we can confirm this week what is going to happen.'
