Notts County: Boss Chris Kiwomya looks to bolster Magpies for final push
NOTTS County boss Chris Kiwomya wants to bolster his team for the League One run-in.
The Magpies are unbeaten in five games and could close the gap on the play-offs to just five points if they beat Leyton Orient at Meadow Lane tonight (7.45pm).
And Kiwomya is eager to dip into the transfer market for a third time, having already signed young strikers John Cofie and Jacob Blyth on loan.
He is staying tightlipped about his targets, but Notts glaringly still need more firepower to get back into the top six.

"We're still looking to maybe bring in one more player or so and that might be the catalyst we need because I still think we're not fully there yet," said Kiwomya.
"The last five games have given us a chance and if we win tonight it's down to five points.
"We're always looking to see where we can add strength to the team and we're looking at one or two positions."
Notts will also rise to eighth in the table with victory against Orient – and Kiwomya says the confidence of the players is high.
"We've had some difficult games and I'm very pleased we've managed to get a little run going and we need to keep it going," he added. "We know we're narrowing the gap and the unbeaten run has given us a lot of confidence."
The Magpies have won their last two home games, thrashing Bury 4-1 and beating Carlisle United 1-0, and Kiwomya knows only another win will do against Orient.
"It is going to be risky football at times, which I don't like, but the reality is that one point is probably not going to be good enough to get us to where we want to get to," he said.
Kiwomya believes his side's next three home games will make or break their play-off hopes, with Preston and Scunthorpe United at Meadow Lane next week.
"It's vitally important we get some good points in the next three games because then you're on the run-in and we can do it," he said.
