Davis Moves For New Striker

Manager Steve Davis is hoping to add a target man to his squad this week and Doncaster Rovers' Chris Brown looks to be favourite.

Davis has made no secret of his desire to make the team a more physical force under his management and bringing in a 'big striker' is already his top priority.

Until Dario stepped down last weekend, the attack has gone largely unchanged as Ajay Leitch-Smith and Shaun Miller struggled to find the scoring form that impressed so much last season.

Davis is hoping a target man can help the likes of Miller & Leitch-Smith out in making the ball stick up front and is even hoping to get one in before Saturday's trip to Morecambe.

Today, assistant manager Neil Baker made the first steps to securing a signature as he went out on a scouting mission & to speak to an un-named manager over a possible loan.

Davis told the official site that he's not only after a physical presence but also wants experience:

'We have targeted two or three potential forwards and we will do our best to bring one of them in before the weekend if possible. Saying that it is never easy bringing one in on loan.

'Neil is watching one today, he is a Championship player and we'll see if we can do something with him. Neil will be speaking to their manager this afternoon.

'We do have enough young players in the team at the moment and I want a more experienced one who has been in the game over a period and has that experience.'


One name who has been linked with the Alex this week is Doncaster's Chris Brown. The 26 year old is currently on his way back from injury after undergoing knee surgery in September.

Having previously played for Preston, Norwich and Sunderland, where he scored twice against the Alex on his debut, he's already demanded over 700,000 in transfer fees.

Brown will have featured in a behind closed doors friendly between Doncaster and Chesterfield today and at 6ft 3in, certainly fits Davis' requirements.
