Steve McClaren hopes to bolster his squad ahead of Nottingham Forest's clash with East Midlands rivals Derby - but is not optimistic about his chances.

McClaren has expressed his frustration at the club failing to make three or four 'stellar' signings before the transfer window closed.

Asked if he would like to see new loan signings in before Saturday, McClaren told the Nottingham Post: "I would like to but the way it is going at the present moment, I don't expect to."

He added: "But we keep trying, that is my job and is probably why I have spoken out. I am fighting for the team, fighting for the fans and want them to be proud of the team.

"Ishmael Miller and Derbyshire came in late, we got them after about three games (into the season) and they are building up minutes and fitness.

"We did not get them in early enough. We are paying the price and playing catch up, but we will catch up. This can be a good team."
