Boss eyeing new signing
Scottish Division 2,
Alloa boss Paul Hartley has revealed he hopes to add a striker to his ranks before the end of next week.
Alloa slipped to their first home defeat in six months on Saturday thanks to Derek Holmes' first half strike for Arbroath. The Wasps remain in second place despite the defeat, seven points ahead of Brechin, who have four games in hand. A frustrated Hartley rued a lack of firepower and admits he is hopeful of signing a striker before they take on Arbroath again at Gayfield Park on Wednesday. "I can put up with a defeat but not the manner of performance," he said. "We need more from the front guys and I will hopefully bring in someone before the game at Arbroath on Wednesday. "It was poor. We did not play like the way we can play. We just did not get going at all. We were pedestrian in our passing and tempo. There was just no spark. "I am not going to make any excuses. It was just really poor."
