NIGEL Clough may look to bring in one more player to add to his Brewers squad before the transfer window closes on Friday.

The Brewers manager has already made three signings in January, but the departure of Liam Boyce to Hearts means that he may have room for another striker.

He said: “We might just need a bit of cover up front with Liam going and we will see about that this week.

“We have our maximum number of loans so if we take another one, we can’t put them all in the 18 together. But there’s a chance of bringing someone in on a permanent. We will have a good chat this week and see what we think we need.

“There are not many strikers available on permanent deals in January, but we have one in mind and will see if something develops.”

But Clough also believes his squad can cope without Boyce.

He said: “We know we have a direct replacement with Lucas Akins, and the strength of the squad means we move on with a bit of confidence

“Kieran Wallace should be back his week, Reece Hutchinson is not far away, and Nathan Broadhead could be back this week and as everyone gets healthy, we are happy with the squad.

“Even without them you look at the bench on Saturday and it was the strongest it has been for some time. When you see you have the likes of Joe Sbarra and Richard Nartey to come on it’s a comfort.”

The Brewers travel to AFC Wimbledon tomorrow night (kick off 7.45pm).

Clough said: “Wimbledon are a different team on their own pitch. They are more than capable and another team who emphasise that the league is very strong and very even this year.”
