Barrow AFC manager Ian Evatt accepts that he needs to use the current two-week break from playing to bring in new players that will strengthen his squad, The Mail report.

Evatt was very unhappy with the manner of the Bluebirds’ 2-0 defeat at National League strugglers Havant & Waterlooville last Saturday, with his side not showing the same drive and fortitude they’d displayed in previous games.

It’s not clear yet as to which areas the 37-year-old is looking to add more depth to, but with the future of midfielder Kemy Agustien unresolved, at this moment, it could be that new blood will be added to the middle of the park.

Evatt said: “I think we need to (bring players in). I think we need to strengthen the squad.

“We’ve spoken about it, myself, the chairman and the new investors. I’ve got a clear idea of what we need and it’s just about getting them over the line.

“We certainly won’t rush into anything, but we need to not stand still in football and keep improving, so I think we probably need one or two more.”
