York City manager Nigel Worthington is considering a dip into the loan market for a striker from the higher division to solve their problem in front of goal.
The Minstermen are currently sitting in 17th place, are unbeaten but winless after five games. They have managed more shots than any other club in League Two but only scored five in the process.
The former Northern Ireland boss is worried about the current problem and is looking to resolve the situation as soon as possible.
Talking to the York Press, Worthington said ”We inquired about a couple of players before the transfer window closed but there was nothing doing, not many people let you have out-and-out strikers who finish well and you are probably looking at young strikers from higher up the leagues.”
“Basically, somebody that might be frustrated because they have so many top-class players in front of them and they’re not getting a game. The loan window will be opening next week and, if we have to go down that route we will do, but the players have got a chance to put things right against Stevenage tomorrow and, hopefully, take some chances.” added Worthington.
“It is also down to if and when someone is available and they have to be the right person to fit into our group.”
Wes Fletcher was their top goalscorer last season with 13 goals until he picked up an injury in February. Worthington is hoping he will have the former Burnley forward available this weekend.
York are hoping to win their first game after six games against 15th place Stevenage away on Saturday.
