Player-manager Craig McAllister is looking to bolster his Gosport Borough ranks.  

The Privett Park outfit have struggled for form of late and currently sit 14th in the Southern League premier division south standings.

Borough have won just one of their previous six league matches – having started the campaign with four victories from the opening seven games.

Player-boss McAllister has been pleased with performances in recent weeks but knows results must now begin to follow.

Gosport, who were held at home by basement boys Chesham United last weekend, are without a fixture on Saturday after they were knocked out of the FA Trophy last month.

They host high-flying Taunton Town on Saturday, November 17 and McAllister hopes to bring some new recruits in before that clash.

He said: ‘You're always looking to strengthen your squad.

‘It's a difficult time in the season to be looking for players.

‘It's still early, we've only played 14 league games.

‘Players are still hanging on at clubs, waiting for their opportunity.

‘Every manager is looking for players. I've spoke to a lot of managers, a lot of clubs and everyone is looking for players.

‘The players that come to this football club have to be the right ones.

‘What I mean by that is, they have to have the right attitude, want to come here for the right reasons, want to help us progress and get out of this league.

‘We're not going to sign people for the sake of it, they need to be better than what we have.

‘There'll be two or three that we'll add.

‘We'd like to do it before our next game but it's got to be right.

‘I don't think it's right to keep bringing people in for the sake of it, we want to keep adding quality.’
