IFFY Onuora is not ruling out a raid on the emergency loan market as he anxiously awaits the verdict on a trio of County Ground casualties.

The manager hopes the healing process will be swift in the respective cases of Trevor Benjamin (thigh), Sean O'Hanlon (ankle) and Charlie Comyn-Platt (foot) as he keeps a nervous eye on his depleted squad.

There will be no hasty decisions as the manager looks to Saturday's trip to Bradford City but Onuora will not hesitate to move into the emergency market should he feel the need to do so.

He said: "Sean has had a long standing achilles situation but we're hoping he'll come through it with careful management. He's a warrior.

"Charlie is feeling a little better but I'm not expecting him to be available for the weekend.

"Trevor has his thigh problem and hasn't trained."

Onuora says the trio of injuries illustrates how fragile a squad set-up can be.

He said: "It's a situation I wasn't envisaging.

"You can cope with losing one but now you're talking two or three.

"I was more than happy with the squad as it was a week or so ago but it just shows how quickly things can change.

"I'm mindful of the loan thing. I'll get up to date bulletins on all the injured and see if it is worth doing something for a couple of weeks or whether we can get by.

"We're not conclusive on any of them. I'm not ruling it out (emergency loan) but there'll be no hasty decisions."

Onuora is hoping to be boosted by the return to action of loan winger Albert Jarrett later this week.

The youngster hasn't featured since being involved in a car crash ahead of the Walsall game last Tuesday.

Onuora said: "Hopefully he'll be back with us in a couple of days."

While the immediate task is trying to ensure League One survival, Onuora is also planning for next season and beyond.

The manager has made no secret of his desire to keep the bulk of his current squad together.

He said: "This week has given me a little bit more time to chat to the powers that be and go from there.

"That process is underway as we speak and I'm hoping that maybe by the end of the week they'll be something in writing to the players in terms of keeping them for a bit longer.

"This is a commitment to them from the club and hopefully that further reinforces their commitment to the club."

It seems youth comes first in the contract queue with the likes of Ricky Shakes, Charlie Comyn-Platt and Jack Smith all free agents in the summer.

Onuora said: "You're talking about the younger ones. They've made good strides. It looks after them, it looks after us and hopefully it's one of those win-win situations."
