Oran Kearney hopeful of more transfer business for Coleraine

Oran Kearney made an early move in the transfer window bringing in Eamon Fyfe from Dundela, but the Coleraine boss is hoping to do some more business this month.

As Fyfe arrived at The Showgrounds Evan McLaughlin was heading out the exit door as Derry City recalled him from his loan deal.

The former Duns forward came off the bench to make his Bannsiders debut in Monday's 0-0 draw at Linfield.

The Coleraine squad was fully tested at Windsor Park as Gareth Deane, Josh Carson and Conor McDermott were all ruled out due to illness or injury.

Kearney is hoping he can add a couple of new faces before the window closes to bolster his side for the second half of the season.

"We might lose one or two and ideally would be nice to bring someone in but there's not very much out there," he said.

"We've lost Evan back to Derry and Evan was brilliant for us and a great lad but they want him back for pre-season.

"We've signed Eamon which brings us to 20 so we'll see.

"It would be nice if we could bring in one or two but we had a massive transition in the summer and I don't want to go back to that. I don't think we need a huge amount

"On a day like Monday against Linfield we could have done with an extra body, but hopefully come Saturday we'll have those three players back and we'll have a really strong bench again."
