Huddersfield Town manager Lee Clark has confirmed he has abandoned plans to bolster his attack before the loan window closes.
Clark was keen to strengthen his options, with Nathan Eccleston suspended, and he was considering resting Jordan Rhodes.
However, the former Ipswich man impressed in their 2-0 weekend win at Leyton Orient by scoring, prompting Clark into another re-think.
"It's no secret I was trying to bring in a striker this week because I was down to just the two lads," explained Clark.
"I was maybe going to give Jordan a rest, but he looked very sharp, so maybe I was wrong to do so."
Clark also explained why he decided not to follow up his interest in Orient striker Jonathan Tehoue earlier this year.
He added: "By the time Jonathan Tehoue became available after the court case with his Turkish club, he had gone a full year without competitive football and that was a big gamble for me to take and I decided not to."
