Their chairman Milan Mandaric has confirmed that his top priority when the transfer window re-opens in January is a new centre-forward.

But following confirmation this week that Richard Cresswell will be out of action up to the New Year Kevin Blackwell pointed out that it is vital that he has sufficient cover up front.

Blackwell said: "This time last year an injury like Richard's would have really hurt us but we have got the people in the club now that will keep us going."

Sources close to Healy also indicated that they knew nothing about interest from Portsmouth.
