Wycombe Wanderers are on the lookout for a striker, manager Gareth Ainsworth confirmed.

The 47-year-old was talking after the club’s narrow 1-0 loss to Reading on October 20, which means the club have now gone six league games without a win – losing each of those six matches.

Additionally, only two goals have been scored by the Chairboys in seven games in all competitions this season.

On the flip side, the Adams Park outfit have shipped 14 goals in all.

Speaking at the Madejski, Ainsworth said: “The tenacity is there but we are shy of a goal scorer.

“Uche Ikpeazu is currently out but he is coming back, Akinfenwa is building his fitness up, but we just need to make sure that we’re solid at one end and solid at the other.

“There are some free agents knocking about which are very interesting.

“But we are not going to spend willy nilly.

“We can’t do that at Wycombe, but it is great when you come into a dressing room and Reading are pumping their music and celebrating like they have beaten one of the top teams in the league.

"That was a tough night for them and one of their players said if we keep performing like that, we will be fine.”

Wycombe’s next game is also away, as they play Norwich at Carrow Road on October 24, before two home games against Watford and Sheffield Wednesday to round off the month.
