McGhee in the market for frontmen

24 September 2012

Bristol Rovers boss Mark McGhee is in the market for a pair of strikers.

The Pirates manager watched his side fail to find the net against Fleetwood on Saturday to draw 0-0, and McGhee believes he needs to bolster his front-line, with his team scoring just four times in seven league matches this season.

"There are positives to take out of our defensive performance (against Fleetwood) and now the supporters just have to trust me to get a couple of players that will be the difference between us drawing and winning these sorts of games," he told The Bristol Post.

"We're out there doing our best to find a replacement for (the injured) Matty Harrold and we may possibly also be looking for another striker as well.

"We have a list of strikers we're looking at, because we know we need some strength and depth in that department.

"We will certainly be trying to do business before next weekend in an effort to try to get somebody that will help us put the ball in the back of the net."
