ACCRINGTON STANLEY gaffer John Coleman has admitted that he is looking to bring in at least two new faces before the transfer window slams shut on Thursday evening.

Coleman has so far only caught one of his perminant targets, with the capture of 19-year-old right back Mark King on a free transfer from neighbours Blackburn Rovers.

Stanley’s only other signing was 21-year-old centre back Phil Doughty on loan from Blackpool, after the youngster turned down a chance of a perminant move to Macclesfield Town.

Elsewhere Coleman has lost three players, as he looks to reduce his ‘top heavy’ Accrington squad, with John Miles and Lee McEvilly heading out on loan to leaders MK Dons and Cambridge United respectively.
Summer signing Roscoe D’Sane has been the only perminant casualty as he joined Blue Square Premier outfit Torquay United for an undisclosed fee thought to be around £45,000.

And that isn’t the end of the departures, with Mark Roberts looking set to sign for Northwich Victoria, whilst out of favour forward David Brown is set to join Farsley Celtic on a free transfer Vital Accrington understands.

Coleman said in an interview with the Lancashire Telegraph: ‘I want to bring in another couple of players in – a defender and a striker – but we won’t be jumping the gun and just bringing somebody in for the sake of it.

‘They have to be the right players.’
