Clough keen for strikers

Derby manager Nigel Clough has revealed he is desperately trying to get two strikers in before the weekend clash with Leicester.The Rams boss had a frustrating time in the January transfer window and failed in his attempts to sign Foxes frontman Martyn Waghorn and Conor Sammon from Kilmarnock.
Waghorn remains at the Walkers Stadium while Sammon decided to join Premier League outfit Wigan.
Clough is still keen to bolster his attacking options when the window for emergency loans opens on Tuesday.
He said: "We are desperately trying to get two in the emergency window. How quickly? As soon as we can.
"We'd certainly like one in before Leicester. If we can get two in, we'll do that."We were speaking to clubs last week and we'll see what their injury situations are now the weekend has gone."We're looking around, seeing if there are some young strikers and older experienced ones."We just want a bit of experience and that could just mean that they've played games and not necessarily be about their age, because experience comes with games. We're also still looking for some pace."
