Sheffield United striker Lyle Taylor has scored three goals in as many games since joining on loan and Archibald brought in Gary Fraser on a permanent deal from Bolton following a six-month loan spell.

Archibald, who is preparing his team to tackle Kilmarnock on Saturday, said: "We have room to bring a couple in but it's hard to get the right one to come in and improve your squad, rather than just taking somebody for the sake of it.

"We are actively trying but it's a very, very difficult market. Every time you go to a game it's the same people you see and agents are offering everyone the same players."
