FC Halifax Town boss Neil Aspin could bring in “one or two” new faces before the end of the transfer window.

The Shaymen are yet to win a game so far this season, but registered their first point of the campaign in Saturday’s 2-2 home draw with Bromley.

Aspin says the process of targeting new signings is ongoing and any new faces could help kick start Town’s slow start to the season.

“I’ve got to look to see if I can switch things round,” he said.

“You’re always looking for personnel and if we can get someone in then I have to look at all options.

“You can go so long but eventually we’re going to need to win games and I’m aware of that.

“I have to look to see if I can freshen things up, maybe with one or two new faces.”

Aspin said a new signing could help boost morale at The Shay, but is not panicking about the club’s faltering start and says there’s still a long way to go in the campaign.

He added: “If you do get a new face in it can give people a lift.

“You’re always looking where you can go to get players from, but we have to try and strengthen.

“We’re in a bad position at the moment but we’ve got 41 games to get out of it so it’s not desperate.

“But it’s not very good and I’m not happy about it.

“As a manager you’re depressing when you look at the league table but that’s football.

“It is a hard league. When we first came into this league I expected some hard times but it went really well, probably better than I thought.

“Then last season ended poorly and it’s carried on to this season.

“We need a lift but the only way you get that is by a good performance and winning a game.”
