THE need for Warrington Town to add reinforcements to their squad has become even more apparent.

Defender Shaun Beeley is the latest player to join Yellows’ growing list of injury concerns to leave boss Paul Carden struggling for numbers ahead of tomorrow's trip to Bamber Bridge.

Beeley was forced off during the Boxing Day draw with Witton Albion after coming off worse in a 50-50 challenge during what was his first appearance since November 2.

Efforts to sign a striker to ease the burden on Tony Gray are continuing but with Beeley set to join Dave Raven (hamstring) and Mitch Duggan (suspended) on the absentee list, cover is likely to be needed in defence.

“We have been trying to bring another striker in for months,” Carden said.

“We’ll have to bring another one in now as Beels has gone down.

“He had to go to the hospital straight after the Witton game to get it looked at.

“He said it feels like it did when he broke it a few years ago.

“We’ll have to see how he is but we’re really down on numbers now.

“If he’s out long term, we’ll have to look to address it as best we can.”

Duggan and Bohan Dixon both start three-match suspensions tomorrow after their red cards in the 4-0 loss at Morpeth Town on December 21.

Raven and Steve Jennings (knee) continue to work their way back to fitness, as does long-term absentee Josh Amis (foot).

Relief has arrived in the shape of experienced midfielder Scott Brown, whose arrival on a month-long loan deal from National League side Harrogate Town was confirmed on Christmas Eve.

The 34-year-old, who played a key role in guiding Accrington Stanley to the 2017-18 League Two title, made his debut in the 1-1 draw with Witton and is set to play a big part in the early stages of 2020.
