Stevenage have made two signings so far in the January transfer window but manager Steve Evans says they don't want to stop there.

Goalkeeper Craig MacGillivray became the second new face at the League One when he joined on loan from Mk Dons on Thursday.

He follows another loan signing brought in this week, striker Vadaine Oliver joining from Bradford City, and the club are still in talks with others.

"We’re still looking to do some business," said Evans. "[Director of football Leon Hunter] is working really hard behind the scenes and he deserves enormous applause.  

"Why Leon's never been recognised at the football club is because the insecurity of the other managers. 

"You don't need to be insecure. The sign of a good manager is putting good people around you. 

"I knew Leon from before and it's been hand in glove all the way through. 

"He's a big reason why we got Craig in and despite my relationship with [Vadaine], Leon still has to make it happen club to club. 

"He takes the finances up to board level for the chairman of the board. 

"But we're talking to some people now but we have to also balance the numbers, balance the books a bit and so there are some people talking to us about two or three of our players."

The Stevenage boss was also delighted to bring in the experience and quality of the two new boys.

He said: "I said before the window opened, it wasn’t [going to be] the case that we would go and find better players coming in from higher, etc. 

"But what we have tried to do is improve the competition within the group. 

"Craig was someone we've been speaking to for a little while. The manager at MK Dons wanted to go in a slightly different direction. 

"But Craig has been simply outstanding. He is probably, according to number of players at Burton Albion, the reason why they stayed in League One last year because he was terrific in the second-half of the season. 

"It was quite a simple decision. He ticks the boxes. He’s experienced, a strong shot stopper tick and has good distribution. 

"It’s really good competition for Taye [Ashby-Hammond] and it is two number ones. 

"And in respect to the top end of the pitch, I wanted someone who could just dominate centre backs in the air. 

"Vadaine Oliver is six feet four inches and jumps seven feet five. 

"He's unplayable in his game but he's lacked a little bit of game time because Bradford play a system that predominantly says it's one striker. 

"And you'll be playing Andy Cook all day because he's a goal machine. We love Cookie. 

"But Vadaine is a really good signing for us. He's got a point to prove. Last time he was in League One he got 2223 goals with 17/18 league goals. 

"He was simply brilliant for me. 

"It was no surprise to me when I left Gills, he left. He picked a good club in Bradford but it's just not worked out since. 

"But he'll hopefully play a good part between now and the end of the season."
