SWINDON Town chairman Lee Power expects "two or three'' new faces to arrive at the County Ground during the forthcoming transfer window, insisting his ambition to return to League One at the first time of asking remains undimmed despite an inconsistent first half of the season.

The club supremo revealed that work was already well advanced to boost David Flitcroft's squad with the midfield and defensive areas of the team under the most scrutiny.

Flitcroft has already underlined his intention to beef up his options, Town's indifferent recent form having seen them slip into the middle of the League Two table, with his boss adamant that he will aim to deliver on his manager's requirements as the month-long window swings open.

While Flitcroft has previously stated he will have to ship out some of his current crop in order to bring in a new influx, Power claims he is prepared to pull out all the stops to deliver the goods if his manager has specific targets.

Speaking to BBC Wiltshire prior to yesterday's 5-0 home thrashing by Luton Town, the chairman said: "I've spoken to the manager and we've gone through plans for that (the transfer window) and depending on who comes in and who goes out, he's got a list together.

"He's worked on it before now but things are starting to be put into place for the first week in January.

"There is a list of people there and a few people that need to be gone from here and I think there will be two or three new faces.''

Referring to areas of the squad to strengthen, Power added: "I think (in) midfield we're obviously very light in the middle of the park and I think defensively we're looking for maybe a bit of cover.

"That's what the manager has asked for. He's got his targets and we've started to work on them. Things should be a bit more concrete as we go along.''

Discussing the 'one-in-one-out' scenario, Power said: "That's normally how you try and work it, but he's aware that if there are players he wants and we can get them, I'll do my best to get them for him like we have done this season.

"We've gone all in to try and get out of the league and we're only halfway. We've got try and continue with that.''
