MICK Wadsworth says he will scour home and abroad in a bid to unearth the one “fantastic striker” he believes can make the difference for Hartlepool United next season.

Pools outscored just one League One rival this year and with a paltry 15 goals coming away from Victoria Park, they were the lowest away-day scorers in the Football League.

That lack of cutting edge has long since led to fans’ calls for the club to invest in a goalscorer of proven pedigree.

And Wadsworth himself is all too aware of the need to recruit such personnel.

With three attack-minded additions already on board in the form of Nobby Solano, James Poole and Nathan Luscombe, the Pools boss is refusing to rush his search for the final piece of his offensive jigsaw.

Former Pools loanee Roy O’Donovan would be a popular target among supporters, and SportMail understands the Irishman is open to the idea of a move back to the Vic.
