Yeovil manager Terry Skiverton is looking to bolster his squad with another striker as he waits for news on the fitness of Luke Freeman.

It was feared the 18-year-old forward had broken a bone during the League One clash at Bristol Rovers on Saturday but an X-ray later revealed he was just badly bruised.

However, boss Skiverton is aware of his limited resources up front especially if Freeman is ruled out for any length of time.

"I'm still looking to bring a striker in. There's not many out there at the moment," Skiverton told the BBC.

"We've got our eye on a few, but it's not worth bringing someone in to sit on the bench at the moment, so we're keeping that option open just in case someone does get injured, like a Luke Freeman.

"Fingers crossed Luke is not injured, but if he is then we can address it that way, rather than having a young boy to come in and just sit on the bench."
