Nicky Forster has been brought in on loan from Brighton. The striker has had a good goals-to-game ratio throughout his career. Although he is now 36, he has found the back of the net for the Seagulls 16 times in all competitions this season so he clearly has an eye for goal. With Burton injured, and now Sodje with an unspecified problem with his toe, Mooney has been the only striker in training at Sparrows Lane this week.
19-year old Matt Fry has been brought in from West Ham. He was on loan at the Gills earlier this season. He can play at left back as well as centre back which is an important consideration given that Borrowdale is only on a 28-day loan.
