Kettering Town are hoping to have more striking options for this weekend’s clash with Frome Town at Nene Park.

Having been forced to build a team from scratch in the summer, the management team of John Beck and Dean Greygoose are still looking to bring more bodies in and the latter is optimistic that there will be at least one new signing prior to the weekend’s outing.

He said: “We should definitely have one coming in and hopefully there will be two or three more for Saturday.

“We’ve got a lot of options and are talking to a lot of people but the hardest bit is actually getting them into the club.

“It’s always the same in football, the hardest part of signing any new players is actually getting the deal completed.”

And with the lack of punch in the attacking part of the field the Poppies’ problem at the minute - they have scored three times in their four Southern League outings - assistant manager Greygoose says that the club are striving to beef up their frontline.

He added: “We’re just lacking a bit in the final third and that is the most important area on the pitch.

“We have to improve there and we’re working flat out to add more firepower.

“We’re always trying to bring more players in under the budget we’ve got and we’re trying hard to add something.”

And if they are successful, Greygoose believes the fans will start to see a difference.

“It’s a fact, not an excuse, that we’ve got limited options,” he said.

“If you take a number of strikers out of any team it will make a difference and if we can change that we will definitely improve.”
