YELTZ boss Paul Smith hopes to complete a double deal for a striker and winger before this Saturday's crucial clash with third-placed Dunstable.

Halesowen will welcome Dunstable to the Grove (3pm kick-off) and will look to leapfrog their opponents with another Southern Central Division One victory.

Jamie Lucas is heading out on loan to Redditch United for the next month and Town remain without the injured George Forsyth.

It means Smith is keen to freshen up his squad heading into the busy winter months.

He said: "There is no major issues but I just want to bring in a few new faces.

"We have a few injuries and a few players out on loan so it means we have space to bring people in.

"We are looking at a forward and someone in the wide areas and hopefully there will be some movement before the weekend.

"All that matters on Saturday is that we get three points.

"It's a big month coming up for us and it's vital we get points on the board, especially because we fallen a few games behind everyone else.

"It's good to have a run of league games coming up and the game against Dunstable is really going to be a test of our character and where we are as a side.

"They are doing well but we are in good form ourselves."

Meanwhile, the Yeltz drew 2-2 at home to Stamford in the FA Trophy on Tuesday night. They will now head away for the reply next Tuesday.

"It was actually a really enjoyable game between two good sides," added Smith.

"I was very impressed with Stamford and thought they were one of the best sides we have faced this season.

"Both teams changed tactics throughout and it was a real battle and a humdinger of a cup tie.

"We had one of our best spells in the first half and would have been out of sight for want of better finishing.

"They weathered the storm and changed their shape and were then on top themselves.

"We then chased the game after going behind, kept knocking on the door and deservedly got an equaliser.

"We'll look forward to the replay now."
