Stags in talks with strikers ahead of transfer window

Goal-shy Mansfield Town are in talks with two strikers ahead of the opening of the January transfer window.

Mansfield boss Paul Cox said it wasn’t rocket science what they needed and revealed: “We are always looking and I have already touched base with a couple of players.

“It will all depend on what happens between now and 1st January.

“The players I am looking at will be coveted by a number of clubs, but I’d like to think we have got in there first. We are talking to some decent footballers at the minute.

“It is obvious we need more goals at the moment. But it will all be down to finance and we will probably have to move one or two on to free up a bit of money. I am looking for goals and that bit of nous.”
