BOSS Bren Kelly is in the hunt for a new right-back to help freshen up his Bromsgrove Sporting squad.

The manager has two key targets in his sights as he looks to add to his defensive options approaching the winter months.

He said: "We have been looking to bring in a right-back for a number of weeks but without much joy.

"We have now focused our attention on two targets and hopefully something can get done soon. We are looking at one player who has been with a Football League club and another from step two at the moment.

"We changed things around against Barwell and put Kyle Lincoln at left-back because we wanted a bit more physicality. That saw Jack Wilson switch over to the right where he did really well. He doesn't have a problem playing there but we'd still like to get the right player in if we can find them."

Sporting beat Barwell 3-1 away last Tuesday as they quickly returned to winning ways following defeat to Nuneaton the weekend before.

The FA Trophy clash against the same opposition was postponed due to a waterlogged Victoria Ground pitch on Saturday, meaning the fixture will now be played on Tuesday night.

Sporting return to league action with a trip to face Leiston this Saturday.

Kelly was pleased with how his side hit back away from home at Barwell, adding: "To say I was unhappy after Nuneaton is an understatement. I've still not got over it completely but the performance on Tuesday did go someway to helping that.

"The players know themselves it wasn't acceptable and that they had to show a reaction.

"To go to Barwell and score three was really good from us. They were on a run of three wins without conceding a goal, which takes some doing at this level.

"They did have chances late in the game but Tony (Breeden) made some vital saves.

"We were hoping to follow that up quickly on Saturday but that'll have to be Tuesday now. We tried everything to get the game on but even if we'd have managed it I think the pitch would have been out of operation for three weeks."

Greg Mills bagged his first goal for the Rouslers during the Barwell win.

Kelly said: "I thought he was excellent. He's a marked man in every game because everyone knows how talented he is. I wondered how their full back was still on the pitch with some of the challenges he put in.

"But Greg kept his cool and made important contributions and showed exactly why we brought him to the club.

"He scored with a superb free-kick and then set one up for Shaquille McDonald when his shot was pushed out by the keeper."
