Darlington boss Dave Hodgson is ready to make further moves in the transfer market.Dave Hodgson is ready to make further moves in the transfer market in a bid to cement Darlington's play-off spot.
The North East outfit are handily placed to be involved in the promotion picture at the end of the season but Hodgson is still keen to further improve his squad.
Influential striker Clyde Wijnhard is suspended for a further two matches while classy veteran Craig Hignett is out with a groin strain - prompting Hodgson to act.
Millwall's Kevin Braniff and Huddersfield's Akpo Sodje are currently training with the club, with Hodgson likely to make a decision on both players in the not too distant future.
''We need as much cover as possible for the run-in,'' said Hodgson.
''Both lads will play for the reserves and we will make a decision from there.
''It is likely that we will take at least one of the two until the end of the season.
''Added to that, we're already without Lids and Joey, so there is a possibility we'll bring another defender in.''
