Lowestoft Town joint boss Ady Gallagher insists any new signings must buy into the team ethos that exists at Crown Meadow.
The departures of Jefferson Louis and Rickie Hayles, coupled with a lengthy injury list, has left the Blues management short of options in recent weeks. Gallagher confirmed earlier this month that the club is looking to strenthen the squad but warned that any potential recruits must possess the right character for the Blues to take the plunge.
'We are obviously interested in players that can improve us and join in as part of the dressing room and make us strong,' said Gallagher, whose side claimed an impressive 3-1 win against Chorley last weekend.
'You need men and you need men who are going to pull everyone together. We need players that are prepared to fight for our cause.'
Hayles' departure for Bishop's Stortford came as a surprise to many Blues fans with the defender impressing following his summer move from Hornchurch.

However, when his head was turned by a move closer to home, Lowestoft felt they were left with little option but to let him leave and look for a potential replacement.
'The bottom line is that he's not here anymore and we have to focus on the players that are at the club,' added Gallagher.

'I felt the spirit amongst the group (against Chorley) was fantastic.
'Good luck to any players that don't want to be here. I know that Lowestoft Town is buzzing and all the players are pulling in the same direction.
'What we are looking for now is players that want to come to this club and roll their sleeves up and be a part of what we are trying to achieve here. We will continue to look for for the right type of players.'
Lowestoft embark on the shortest away trip of their season today when they go to Boston United, who are without a win in their last four games. Ashlee Jones comes back into contention after serving his one-match suspension whilst the management team could be tempted to start Andrew Fisk after his substitute appearance last weekend following a knee problem.
