NEIL LENNON is involved in a frantic search for a striker after watching Bolton crash 4-1 at Huddersfield Town.

The ex-Celtic boss, linked with former frontman Anthony Stokes in the summer, has seen his side score only four goals in eight league games as they have plunged to 21st in the Championship.

Emile Heskey, 37, suffered a hamstring injury after only 10 minutes of their third defeat of the campaign.

It came after Bolton lost youngster Zach Clough to a dislocated shoulder earlier in the week.

Lennon said: “To lose Heskey so early was a blow and it’s imperative now that we bring a striker in.

“Our final play has been poor all season. We have created decent chances, but we are not converting them.

“If we don’t find that bit of quality in the squad, it’s going to be a long, hard season.”

Liam Feeney gave Bolton a third-minute lead, but the home side came back with goal from Emyr Huws (2), Mustapha Carayol and Joel Lynch to claim the points.

To add to Lennon’s misery, defender Derik Osede was sent off in the closing stages.
