HUDDERSFIELD TOWN have been rebuffed in their efforts to boost their firepower after failing to land Michael Chopra and Richard Naylor.

Terriers chief Mick Wadsworth is desperate to strengthen his shot-shy attack which has scored a meagre 19 goals in 27 league games this season.

Wadsworth is under increasing pressure at the McAlpine Stadium with The Terriers propping up Division Two and is fighting to save his job.

But his attempts to bolster his front line faltered when his loan enquiries for Newcastle United teenager Chopra and Ipswich Town striker Naylor were rejected.

"I think if we can get anyone, I still think that it needs to be someone who can score goals," said Wadsworth.

"I looked at Chopra this week from Newcastle. Bobby (Robson) was willing to help but it was stopped at a higher level, which I understand.

"I tried to get Naylor from Ipswich and again, Joe (Royle) would love to help but they may be selling a player in the next few days so he has to hang onto what he has got."
