Port Vale manager Neil Aspin says the club are aiming to bring in at least one new signing in the near future.
Vale have been criticised as top-scorer Tom Pope’s injury have left them short of cover upfront and despite the income from Vale’s Checkatrade run and the Jordan Hugill sell-on fee, Vale have only added unknown striker Danny Elliott.
We will have another striker in for Saturday and we are still looking to get a couple more…
Asked if he would be backed by funds from owner Norman Smurthwaite Aspin commented: “When you have got a manager under pressure like myself and you are not getting results then regardless of what the chairman’s plans are he is in a difficult situation isn’t he.
“You have to look at it from his point of view. But what we have been able to do is bring in Adam Crookes who has given us balance at the back.”
“Danny [Elliott] is a gamble. We have put him on today but if we had more strikers he wouldn’t be thrown in the deep end. But we are going to sign another striker this week.
“We will have a striker but he cant play in the Checkatrade [game against Bristol Rovers] because he has already played. But we will have another striker in for Saturday and we are still looking to get a couple more.”
