Meanwhile, Coates has confirmed that the club has taken the first steps to filling in two of the three open corners between the stands at the Britannia Stadium, by bringing in surveyors to have a look at the foundations.
"It depends on how we do, I'd certainly like to do it because it would mean that we could use it and fill it, and that would be another step forward."
There are plans for a wind break to be erected between the Boothen End and the main stand this summer to protect the pitch from the chilling wind, but Coates does not want it to take the edge of their boisterous support.
"I don't want our supporters going soft. If it's cold, you should just put a coat on. I never get cold at the ground."
