Micky Mellon

said that the club will not add to their squad in the January transfer window due to financial problems caused by the COVID-19 crisis.

Ahead of their clash with

St Mirren

on Wednesday, Mellon said he will make do with the current squad and tries to give them time to grow.

He said:

“At the start of the season, I said I had a group of players who I was trying to make better and give time to grow.

“Development is all about time so you have to give it time.

“Like my mam said yesterday, ‘you have to give soup time son, you can’t go eating it too quickly’.

“So I am trying to give the soup a bit of time to get better and better.

“I have a group of young players who need time to grow. I am strong with them, I know how to make them better.

“So I haven’t gone to the owners or (sporting director) Tony (Asghar) and actively said, ‘I want this’ because I believe every position I have got pathways to look after.

“We are a real strong squad in terms of our academy. If you want an academy to work you have to look at opportunities to bring them through
