Forte one of the targets for Sheridan

John Sheridan’s search for players goes on with former Blade Jonathan Forte believed to be his next target.

The 25-year-old frontman, who has almost three years of his contract at Southampton remaining, looks like he could be heading to the B2net on loan.

The Sheffield-born Barbados International, who has had loan spells at both Rotherham United and Doncaster Rovers, has featured just once for The Saints this term as a scoring sub in a 4-1 Carling Cup win over Torquay United.

Spireites had three players making debuts in the weekend loss at Exeter City and this week they will also have Alex Mendy cleared to play after his protracted acquisition from the Czech Republic.

With the permanent transfer window set to close tomorrow, there’s a chance Sheridan could add to his struggling squad even further whilst no doubt also looking to move some players out, at least on loan.

Saturday is a huge day for the B2net side. Leyton Orient, five losses from five League One games and the only team below Chesterfield in the table, are the visitors in a game that the home fans will all see as a ‘must win’ encounter.

Russell Slade’s men were in the lead at home to Carlisle at the weekend before conceding twice in the final half-hour to lose 2-1.
