Keates, who has already added Omar Mussa, Matt Jarvis, Scott Laird, Cameron Norman, and Dan Scarr to his squad this month, is keen to take the pressure off top-scorer Andy Cook and add players to his attacking line, whilst also calling upon current crop to step up to the plate.
Speaking via the Express & Star, Dean said; "Before the window shuts, I’m hopeful, fairly optimistic, that we’ll add a forward. People need to contribute and add to the goal tally. It’s something we’ll be looking at and, all being well, other players – maybe one or two – might join and add to the group, and do that.
"The lads that are in the group already need to step up to the plate as well. But one thing about Cooky’s stats is that he scores a lot more goals in the second half of the season than he does in the first."
