St Albans City joint manager James Gray has hinted that he may dip into the transfer market to strengthen his side for the second half of the season.
City finished the first half of the season seventh in the league, two places off the play-off places, and face a busy schedule in January and February as they look to jump into the top five.
Gray and Graham Golds have recently brought in Tom Ward from Gainsborough Trinity as well as loanees Jamal Lowe and Nathan Ferguson to help the charge but they have not discounted bringing in more new faces.
Speaking after Saturday’s 4-0 win against Frome Town, Gray said: “There may be something in the transfer market. We’re working hard behind the scenes and there may be some news in the next five or six days.
“Our focus is to get into the play-offs and, if we do, then we [need] a strong enough squad to win it.”
He added: “We’re happy [with the squad] but if you stand still in football then you’re falling behind.
“What we don’t want is injuries and suspensions and then the squad being too threadbare to keep the momentum we’ve built up. If there are any players out there we’ll seek them out and if they’re better than what we’ve got then we’ll try to bring them in.”
