But Steve Evans said after Saturday’s victory that “this club doesn’t wait on Alex Neil” after which he revealed the club were in talks about two other strikers who “if we got them there would be no room for Lafferty.”
Evans had been interested in Stoke City’s Peter Crouch but he is not available for loan apparently and the identity of the two ‘other’ strikers remains unclear but it would be no surprise if one or both of them was Middlesbrough striker Kike and/or Swansea City forward Marvin Emnes, two players who Evans initially tried to loan back in November.
Celtic’s Anthony Stokes is another name suggested. Or we could be looking at another bolt from the blue, another Mustapha Carayol perhaps?
