Vill Powell says he is actively looking to add to his squad due to two injuries his side have suffered writes Tom Feaheny.
Brighouse Town have so far have eleven points from their opening thirteen Evo-Stik North league games.
“With Adam Jones out long term with a thigh injury and Adam Field suffering from ankle issues we are looking to strengthen at right back and central midfield and are currently looking at the availability of players in these positions,” said Powell.
“We haven’t got the resources to just go out and sign everyone and anyone and stock pile players like some clubs do so we have had to dip in the loan market to add a bit more quality and wait for players to become available do to lack of minutes on the pitch.”
Powell says he believes with a few more added to the squad they can start to climb the table.
“It’s been a very frustrating season so far as it feels like we haven’t really settled as a team yet. Although the results haven’t come I’m still confident that we are not a million miles off being a strong team.”
“You often hear managers talk about injury’s or use them as an excuse, but at this level it can really put brakes on your progress and with us it’s be the biggest factor and contributor to recent results as we haven’t been able to field a settled side since the first week of the season. Key players have been injured or suspended, it is hampering our progress and meaning we have had to constantly play players out of position. At one stage we had eight key players out injured or suspended for 3 straight weeks.
“This is part of the game and I’m still enjoying and relishing the challenge of football management. The club has been fantastic in their support and understand where we are at. We are confident the results will come. We do have quality and are strengthening and looking to strengthen areas where we are light and where we are injured.
