Boss Ronnie Moore is keen to complete the deal to bring in Carlisle striker Richard Offiong before tomorrows game with Bradford. The 26 year-old, who now tops Moore's wanted list after several failed bids to bring in a new striker on loan, may make a move South ahead of the weekend.Moore missed out on Leyton Orient's experienced James Scowcroft last week and talking to the Tiser he admits the troubles of his hunt for a partner for Adam Le Fondre."There are one or two weare looking at," said Moore. "We just missed out on Scowcroft at the last minutebecause Orient want to keep him."But there are a couple ofothers we're talking to. Offiong got a few goals playing for Hamilton and Carlislepaid £75,000 for him at the start of the season but he can't get in the team."He's a six-footer and he's quick, which is what we want. We'll try and sort something out before Bradford and if thatd oesn't work out we'll turn ourattentions elsewhere, but you just wouldn't believe how hardit is to find a striker."Welcome to MillersMadHere's our LATEST Messageboard topics MillersMAD are proud sponsors of Dale Tonges home kit.
