Mark Yates: Wants to bring in two or three new players

After a third draw in a row for the Robins, Yates said: "We're not having the best of times at the moment, I can't deflect from that, but I'm looking forward to a good week on the training ground.

"We need to bring a few bodies in to help us which we are hopefully close to doing. With two or three new additions next week then hopefully it will come.

"We huffed and puffed and should have scored a couple of goals from the chances we had but didn't work their keeper enough for a home side in the position we are in.

"We're not right at the moment but we have to keep believing - we are not out of anything and that's three unbeaten. They could be three good points but unfortunately it's not quite happening at the moment. We have good players but we're not at the top of our game.

"We are not creating enough for our strikers, they are feeding off scraps at the moment."

ven if United were to sign CR7 & Messi to play upfront, the fact remains Fletcher and Cleverly are playing in midfield. That's where the problem is. Fletcher is too slow with an awful pass, while Cleverly is simply rubbish
