Dyer switch looking unlikely

Last updated : 16 January 2006 By Rob Davies
Thordarson had been trying to persuade Dyer to join the Magpies on-loan, with the striker out-of-favour at the Britannia Stadium.

But the 30-year-old had been largely un-enthusiastic about a move to League Two and, with Pilgrims manager Tony Pullis also keen on a loan deal with the striker, it seems likely that Thordarson's bid is now set to end in disappointment.

The County manager has already missed-out on a number of attacking targets as he seeks to bolster his shot-shy strike force. Guylain Ndumbu-Nsungu looked set to join the Magpies but instead agreed a move to Cardiff City, while Portsmouth's James Keene has moved to League Two rivals Boston Utd on loan.

Thordarson paired Kelvin Wilson - a defender - with Jake Sheridan - a winger - in attack for Saturday's trip to Wycombe Wanderers and today admitted that the situation is getting desperate.

"You could see the difference up front on Saturday," he told the County official website.

"Wycombe had two quality forwards who score goals in (Tommy) Mooney and (Kevin) Betsy.

"We had Jake and Kelvin up front who gave their all, but right now we all know we need a forward to bang the ball into the net."
