Dickov is confident of being granted transfer funds to bolster his squad despite the resignation of chairman John Ryan, who helped sanction 11 summer signings.

After Yun Suk-Young's training ground injury ruled him out until Christmas, Dickov's makeshift back four battled to a hard-earned clean sheet at Barnsley on Saturday but the Scot insists his side need new recruits.

"I'm confident I will get that support," Dickov told the Star.

"As well as my relationship with John, I've got a great relationship with the existing board, especially the chief executive.

"Underneath the back four that played on Saturday we've got Liam Wakefield and then not a lot else. So I think it's important we have to strengthen that area."
