Cheltenham manager Mark Yates will look to the loan market to give his faltering side the shot in the arm they need.

Yates did not mince his words after Saturday`s 3-0 home defeat to struggling Hereford left Town six points off the play-off places and with almost all of their rivals boasting games in hand.

"I have to look at myself and the players because there were a lot of disappointing things," he said, with Town now winless in five.

"We were out-worked and out-played and I don't expect that. Our recent performances have been excellent, but they (Hereford) have done a good job on us. We didn't work hard enough and I don't think any players can come out of it with any credit and neither do.


"We'll do everything possible now and that will include getting one or two in.

"I am waiting for an answer and it might be the right thing to do so the players know in no uncertain terms how unhappy we are with the performance."
