Lowestoft Town boss Ady Gallagher insists fans shouldn't expect an influx of senior players, despite the exits of two senior players recently.

Joe Marsden and Michael Spillane left the club earlier this month for Leiston and Chelmsford City respectively with Lowestoft opting to bring in Norwich City youngsters Ollie Tarft, Callum Bishop and Ryan Miles to supplement their squad.

Gallagher admits the loan route is Lowestoft's best chance of bringing in new blood and is unlikely to bring in any experience any time soon.

'We would like to bring in loan players from clubs who are going to support us as far as wages are concerned,' admitted Gallagher, ahead of today's trip to Kingstonian.

'We could possibly stretch to bringing in one player but there's nothing imminent. It's incredibly tight.'

Gallagher has been pleased with the impact made by their Canaries trio.

'I've been really pleased with them – they've looked really good in training and I think they're giving us a nice blend in the squad to go with the experience that we've got,' said Gallagher, who is having to box clever in the transfer market after having his budget reduced from previous seasons. 'It's brought a nice bit of freshness to our training. They will get their opportunities so it's good for them as well.'

Gallagher added: 'It's important to pick up some form and a bit of consistency. Kingstonian is a nice pitch and what we got used to playing on last season but it doesn't mean you're going to get away with not doing the ugly things.'
