Redbridge joint managers Dave Ross and Ricky Eaton will use their free weekend to look at new players, who they hope will strengthen the club and move them up the Ryman One North table.

Motormen sit second bottom after they suffered another late loss on Wednesday night, this time to Romford.

Redbridge have conceded numerous late goals this year but Ross has stated he and fellow manager Eaton will be working as hard as possible to turn the situation around.

“We are competing against every team and coming away saying we should have got at least a point, sometimes three, but at the end of the day we are coming away with nothing,” said Ross.

“We have got to get our heads together and if we need to go and get other players in we will, although obviously it is difficult with the financial situation of the club.

“Rickie and I both know loads of players, we have given the players here every opportunity to do the job but at the moment we are desperate to get points and we can’t keep leaving it and leaving it.

“We need to start working on it but no one is going to work harder than Rickie and I to start turning it around so we just need to keep plodding on.”

Although the club have consistently leaked goals this season, Eaton wouldn’t be drawn on what specific position Redbridge were looking to strengthen in.

Instead, he admitted the club will look to take any opportunity they can to add to the playing squad.

Eaton added: “In terms of personnel we are looking open mindedly and if anyone becomes available we will strengthen in any area.

“We have given every player an opportunity to stake their claim in this side and impress us. Now the team collectively are doing that but individually we just need to tweak a couple of things.

“We need to make sure people are on their toes so if we can bring a couple of people in, to keep people on their toes, we will do it.”

Ross is frustrated to be without a game this weekend but is looking forward to training, for the first time in a while.

“It gives us a chance to do a training session and I can’t remember the last time we had one,” said Ross.

Eaton added: “It gives us a good opportunity to look at a few boys we have coming down so you can expect some new signings from us and we’ll go again.”
