FRICKLEY Athletic manager Peter Rinkcavage is still looking to bolster his squad with more firepower despite this week’s signing of Peter Knox.

The 31-year-old striker arrived at South Elmsall from Bridgewater Town, who he played for while working in Somerset, and went straight into the starting eleven for Tuesday night’s 2-1 win at North Ferriby United.

Knox has been prolific at Evo-Stik Premier Division level before with Eastwood Town and Blues fans will be hoping for more of the same at the Tech5 Stadium.

But with Ollie Ryan still “a couple of weeks” away from returning to training, Rinkcavage is still looking to add another striker to his squad.

“We’re going to have a look at bringing someone else in,” he said.

“We lost out with the injury to Ollie Ryan and we’ve been playing with young lads up front. They have expectations to score goals and we need to add more experience to the front line.

“Ollie is still a couple of weeks away from returning to light training and we had to make three forced changes on Tuesday night because of knocks to Alex Callery, Kelvin Bleau and Dave Cyrus.”

New addition Knox, who has returned to Yorkshire from a spell working in Somerset, is set to lead the line when Frickley travel to the Midlands to take on Chasetown in the Evo-Stik Premier Division on Saturday.

Michael Simpkins will also return from suspension.

Rinkcavage said: “I’ve seen quite a bit of Chasetown and although they haven’t made the best of starts they’re still a good team so it will be tough for us.”
