Lee Johnson spoke of his delight with his two young transfer-deadline signings. Ellis Plummer and Wade Joyce have both signed short loan deals with the club.Johnson said, "I have watched Ellis quite a few times and he is athletic and powerful and, though not the biggest, he certainly has a big leap. He is left footed so can play left centre half or left back. I felt we needed another defender and I am looking forward to working with him. Ellis is slightly different to what we already have and sometimes it is a case of horses for courses." "Wade is a good lad, a real football person and a good player. He needs to add certain things to his game to push towards our first team and I am having a closer look at him until January to see whether he can get to the point where he is knocking on the door of the first eleven."
