Accrington Stanley manager John Coleman has dismissed suggestions the club desperately need to sign a striker during the transfer window.
Stanley have scored just four goals in their last seven matches, leaving them 15th in the League Two table.
While that may be the case, Coleman insists he does have confidence in the forwards he currently has at the club.
“Four weeks ago we didn’t think we needed a striker and we’ve not become a bad team overnight,” he said.
“We need to start scoring and stop being wasteful in front of goal as we look nervous at the moment for some reason.
“There is no point feeling sorry ourselves as we have to be positive – if we lose games while being positive then so be it.
“At the moment we haven’t got a goalscorer but we do have good approach players.
“James Gray is probably our most prolific player and in order to get him on the pitch he has to do other things.
“We’ll just carry on how we’re going and if we can bring players in then we will.”
Meanwhile, speculation is rife over the future of Accrington defender Tom Aldred.
The 24-year-old wasn’t part of the squad against Bury, ending his run of 92 consecutive league starts for the club.
His absence suggests that a move away from the club could be imminent, and Coleman revealed that Aldred ruled himself out of the match.
“He declared himself injured last night so draw your own conclusions from that.”
