Davies seeks fresh blood

Nottingham Forest manager Billy Davies is determined to strengthen his squad after they were held to a 1-1 draw at Reading. Alex Pearce had put Reading ahead against the run of play before goalkeeper Adam Federici - who was outstanding in the first period to keep Forest at bay - made a horrible mess of a clearance to allow Robert Earnshaw to pounce. Davies said: "I am delighted with the point and we should have taken all three. Their goalkeeper didn't deserve that because he kept them in the game, but the goal was no more than we deserved after dominating the first half. "I am very clear what we have to do now. We must add quality, quantity and depth to this squad. "The process is quite simple. You have to identify targets, look at valuations and then ask whether we can pay the transfer fees and match the personal terms. That's the big question. "I don't know whether we can because I don't do that. We finished third in the league last season and I am clear in mind what has to be done; identify, evaluate and see if we can pay."
