Former Swansea City players Kristian O'Leary and Dennis Lawrence are training with Wrexham.But manager Dean Saunders has yet to decide whether the moves are to be more permanent. [LNB]"Kris is not fit at the moment but I'm going to give him a chance to get fit and then have a look at the situation then," said Saunders. [LNB]"Kristian is certainly the type of player we need. He is aggressive but he can play football as well." [LNB]O'Leary has come to the Racecourse after being released by Swansea City. [LNB]The Port Talbot product has also had spells on loan to Cheltenham Town and Leyton Orient. [LNB]"He is big, 6ft 2in. He can play centre back, can play in midfield anywhere. He has played a lot of games in the championship. He has been at Swansea 15 years," said Saunders. [LNB]Lawrence is back at the Racecourse where he was captain under former manager Denis Smith. [LNB]"Dennis is coming in training. He isn't doing anything at the minute. He is a good character to have around the place. We don't know if that is going to go anywhere. We'll see what happens," said the Racecourse boss. [LNB]Saunders confirmed that he will be looking to bring players in during the close season with the emphasis on goal scorers. [LNB]"I haven't got enough players who can get goals," he said. [LNB]"So I have to look at that and address it. I think we need three or four players. I will be looking at that in the summer.[LNB] Should Wrexham sign Kristian O'Leary and Dennis Lawrence? "We will be looking for some strong-minded men who can get on the end of things and score the goals. The chances we have been creating are unbelievable. [LNB]"I have got to get a few players who can get goals out of nothing. [LNB]"Defensively we can get better but I will take the goals against next year. [LNB]"This club has had a disaster and I'm trying to get them out of it."
