David Dunn has confirmed he is working on more potential deals as he bids to bolster his Barrow AFC squad.

The Bluebirds boss wants to add another two new faces to help AFC continue their solid start to life in the EFL.

Dunn may not have the new additions in time for Barrow’s first League Two away game at Newport tomorrow.

But he is keen to get more deals done soon.

“We’ve got a couple we’re on with,” he told The Mail.

“We’ve just got to keep going and hopefully we can get it in place.”

Dunn said it was “possible but doubtful” the signings would be made in time for the trip to South Wales.

He added that it was important any new faces that join the Bluebirds are of the right calibre.

“I only want to bring players to the club that are going to help us,” the manager said.

“I don’t just want to bring them in for the sake of numbers – I don’t want to do that.”

Dunn is hoping his squad will also soon be enhanced by the return of some of his injured players.

The likes of Patrick Brough, Matty Platt and Josh Kay have been sidelined recently.

The Bluebirds chief said: “We’ve still got a couple of niggles, but we’ve a couple on the way back that won’t be too long now.

“We’re slowly getting players back.”

Dunn and the Barrow squad will travel to Wales today and the boss is keen they prepare as well as possible as they search for a first victory of the campaign.

Barrow have drawn their first three games in league and cup, and this weekend sees a test against an Exiles side who boasted a strong home record last term.

On the preparations, Dunn said: “We’re lucky we’ve got some good people at the club who look after that side.

“We’ll set off early, get down there and make sure we get down there for mid-afternoon. We’ll train down there and prepare properly at the hotel.”

The Barrow boss said his side must learn the lessons from their opening league game against Stevenage, where they were denied victory by a late Boro penalty.

He was pleased with how Barrow went about their first EFL fixture in 48 years but admitted the build-up to such an historic occasion also took its toll.

Dunn said: “I felt a little bit of that – the excitement, the adrenaline, the apprehension,” he said.

“I thought that took a little bit away from our energy as well.

“That adrenaline and the build-up…it sometimes can sap you. But that’s out of the way now and we can look forward to going on.”

He added: “It’s been a good week and everyone’s looking forward to the weekend. It was a little bit disappointing not to have taken all three points last Saturday with the way it ended, but generally we’re off the mark and looking forward to Newport.

“I thought we did ok, but I think there’s more to come from us. I feel we probably did enough to win the game, but what generally happens is you don’t get away with much the higher up the leagues you go.

“We might have got away with that last year but this year, consecutive errors will generally lead to chances and goals. We’ll have to sharpen up a little bit on that.”
