Kelty Hearts boss Kevin Thomson hopes he can add to his squad in the coming weeks after he was down to the “bare bones” for yesterdays Scottish Cup defeat by St Mirren.

The League Two side were massive underdogs to book their place in the quarter-final draw and were far from their best in the 4-0 thumping in Paisley.

Thomson’s Kelty side are pushing for the League Two title and the Maroon Machine boss is looking for reinforcements to help them secure the title and win back-to-back promotions.

“I hope to add to the squad,” Thomson said. “We have a few injuries and it is not ideal. We were working with the bare bones today,” he said.

“For example, Robbie McNab had not trained but we had to ask him if he would be willing to go on the bench to give us another number in the squad.

“Our bench was attack-minded due to the personal availability so we were never going to go defensive. I will look and see if there is anyone available that can come in and help the lads get over the line [in League Two].”
