The Maidenhead Advertiser say that Slough Town’s frustrated management duo are aiming to revamp their misfiring forward line with the addition of a new striker.

The Rebels have been competitive in all their matches since being promoted into the National League South, creating numerous chances, but they have lacked a cutting edge. They have scored six goals in seven matches.

The Rebels lost 1-0 at East Thurrock on Saturday and 2-1 at home to Dulwich Hamlet on Monday, despite enjoying plenty of opportunities. Rather than wait for his wayward forwards to rediscover their shooting boots, Neil Baker and joint manager Jon Underwood have decided to act.

“We are looking to bring in a striker,” Baker said. “We are going through the process and we’ll have to see if it happens or not.

“We’re not being ruthless enough in front of goal. Our forwards have scored three goals between them in seven matches; that’s not a good enough return.”
