STANLEY’S first team coach Paul Lodge said the Reds have upped their search for a striker.
"We are lacking some firepower," said Lodge after the St Mirren draw.
"I don’t think we are the only club struggling with strikers – a lot of clubs around the area are.
"You pay a lot of money for people who put the ball in the back of the net.
"We are still looking but it is one of the hardest positions to fill. We do have irons in the fire though."
Lodge did have praise for goalkeeper Tony Warner, on trial with the Reds, who pulled off a number of strong saves against the Scottish Premier League side.
"In the second half Tony Warner has made a couple of world-class saves and it was a good finish by them to get past him," said Lodge.
"He made a great save from a free kick which must have stretched his 6ft 5in frame to the limit.
"He will assess us and we will assess him. He is an experienced keeper and you can’t beat experience in that position.
"We would love to have him here."
And Lodge was also impressed by George Miller, who scored a wonder strike to level the friendly.
"I thought George has done really well," he added. "I wasn’t surprised when it hit the back of the net as I have seen it in training.
"It was a tough game against experienced opposition and there were some experienced players in the St Mirren side.
"I think we we weren’t at the races – we were a bit rusty in the first half but we talked about it at half-time and in the second half we found some energy and did really well.
"They are ahead of us in terms of where their season starts – as they kick off this weekend – so it was a good game for us."
