KINGS Heath manager Sean Lawless is trying to bolster his squad ahead of the visit of struggling Bolehall Swifts on Saturday (ko 2.45pm).

Lawless is trying to bring in forwards after suffering a striker shortage at the weekend.

Midfielders Vinny Rattrey and Ashley Galbraith were pitched up front in a makeshift forward line with former Coleshill Town man Galbraith making his debut in the 1-1 derby clash with Studley BKL.

Mark Cartwright was ruled out by a hamstring injury and Lee Brosnan, a recent arrival from bottom club Highgate, was suffering whiplash after a car crash.

Defender Tommy Duggan, thrown up front in a desperate bid for an equaliser, came up with the goods in injury time to earn a point on Saturday.

Lawless has made a seven day approach for Northfield Town's former Stourport Swifts striker Keith Rostill and is also lining up a move for an unnamed Dr Martens forward who he hopes to speak to this week.

And he hopes to have both on board as he chases for maximum points from Saturday and the visit of basement boys Highgate on Wednesday (ko 7.30pm).

Cartwright and Brosnan are also hoping to be back for the weekend with midfielder Dave Crumpton set for a place on the bench as he bids for match fitness after a trapped nerve.
