Motherwell manager Stephen Robinson could still look at bringing in another striker after seeing a move break down on deadline day.

With George Newell and Ryan Bowman injured, Robinson had been hoping to strengthen his attacking options before the deadline on Wednesday night.

Robinson thought he had a deal secured only for it to be pulled at the other end which leaves Well considering whether to look at free agents.

When asked if there was an opportunity to still bring somebody in, Robinson said: "There is. That will be dictated by how quick George Newell comes back. We are hoping to have him back next week, and Ryan Bowman is being assessed, but that's looking like another month.

"Had they been fit I wouldn't be looking again but unfortunately they both got injured in the space of 24 hours.

"We will see what comes up, but I don't want to rush into it. I don't want to just fill the squad with players.

"We have three or four players I feel can really contribute, and then we have to look down the line to the young ones.

"It's something we will monitor. If the right player comes along we will take him but I'm not going to fill the squad up."

Robinson has already brought in Curtis Main following the departure of top-scorer Louis Moult.

The former Portsmouth man has started impressively with three goals in four games, but Robinson had been hoping to bring in another body to ease his workload.

The Northern Irishman said: "When I left for the Hibs game (on Wednesday) we had signed him and he was on his way up the road, but a deal fell down on the other club's part and they pulled the plug on it.

"You're open to that and the boy was extremely disappointed and I feel he would have made a big difference.

"It was only after the game where Alan Burrows informed me it hadn't been done, and some of the players got wind of it because they knew the player.

"It's disappointing but you deal with it. We have players in the building who can deal with it."
