Rotherham's Chief Operating Officer Paul Douglas has claimed that high wages in League Two have pushed the Millers into their current state and clubs need to lower wages across the board. Several club chairmen, including Leyton Orient's Barry Hearn and Dave Pace at Droylsden - who has pumped £4million into the club, believe clubs in Administration should automatically be relegated.
Wrexham have extended the loan of MK Dons striker Drewe Broughton for a third and final month. His stay with the club will cover every remaining game bar the last day decider at Lincoln. Crawley boss Steve Evans was sent off twice over the weekend, making it six times this season that the Scottish fraudster has incurred the referee's wrath. The club are also reported to owe £13,000 to a local coach company, who withdrew their services before their recent trip to Altrincham forcing the players to drive themselves.
Mansfield's takeover could take a late twist after former York chief John Batchelor stated that he could launch a seperate bid for the club. The colourful businessman, despised by York fans for dumping the club into Administration in 2002, has agreed to join James Derry's accepted bid but will go it alone if the situation drags on further. Derry's bid is now seventeen months in the works.
Lincoln boss Peter Jackson will have a newly decorated office to come back to when he returns from cancer treatment. Chairman Steff Wright promised Jackson carpet tiles for the manager's office for every point earned, with Lincoln earning the final tiles with their win over the Bulls on Monday. Rochdale have released midfielder Lee Crooks, who will now climb Kilimanjaro for a cancer charity in June rather than look for another club. The 30 year old will resume his football career afterwards.
Wrexham striker Eifion Williams is to retire after admitting defeat in his battle against injury. The 32 year old started only seven games since arriving at the Racecourse in the summer, and has been out for over three months with a hamstring problem.
