Allan Mackenzie, Shotts Bon Accord
Shotts hope to conclude a deal for a striker before Saturday’s Emirates Cup clash with Benburb.
The Junior outfit are in discussions with an SFL Three club with boss Tony McInally keen to boost his forward options and take the pressure off star hit man Allan Mackenzie.
McInally said: “The striker gets on every week at his club and I expect some movement over the next couple of days. Hopefully we can get him in before the weekend. If we can get it done by then I would be pleased. It’s a priority.”
Meanwhile McInally has confirmed that Clyde central midfielder Ross Lindsay is on trial at Shotts with the gaffer impressed with that he has seen over the past fortnight.
He added: “Ross is a very good footballer. He plays centrally and has got excellent vision and an eye for a pass. He played in a bounce game against Queens Park last week and trained the past two Mondays. I would like to have a further look at him but the initial signs are good.”
