Neil Aspin is aiming to add two new faces to his squad ahead of Saturday’s game with Alfreton.

Aspin revealed the Shaymen have had offers rejected for “four or five” players, but said the squad would benefit from one or two fresh faces.

He said: “We have to look to bring in a couple of players and we need the supporters to stick by us because you have to win and lose as a club.

“We are going through a difficult spell but like all things in football it will turn, but it’s got to turn sooner than later.

“If we could bring in new players we could do with getting them in early in the week so we can train with them.

“We’ve had a lot of things go against us in terms of bringing players in.

“We’ve had about four or five offers for players this season that have all been turned down.

“We’ve got to look at that again going into next week. We need to bring in a new face before the Alfreton game to give everyone a boost and we’ll be trying to do that.

“Obviously clubs don’t want to part with players but we’re going to have to try our best this week to get a couple of new faces in.”

Aspin revealed Halifax unsuccessfully tried to snap up striker Che Adams from Ilkeston before his move to Sheffield United.

He added: “We have been looking in the right areas because we were one of the first clubs to spot Che Adams, who went to Sheffield United, but unfortunately we didn’t get him earlier in the season.

“If we’re going to improve we need to get players who have played at this level, got experience at this level, probably played for bigger clubs at this level.

“That’s the only way we’re going to improve and push forward.

“It’s alright identifying them, but trying to get them is difficult.”
