He told the paper, “I'd like to think it'll happen this week, I'd really be happy if it did as I would like to get a couple in prior to next Tuesday.
“I've not pressed the panic button yet, it isn't dependent on anything we do, it's dependent on pro clubs getting the players they want, if that happens we'll move lower down the feeding chain and be all right.
“It is out of my hands, we've put offers in for a couple of boys, one on a loan and one on a transfer. We had a provisional agreement but until those pro- sides get in, they won't be getting out,” explained Brown.
Frustrating times indeed, as the boss is forced to play the waiting game for his targets while the League clubs to get players in, Brown is also working on getting some of his own players out — namely the trio of tansfer listed players.
Ahmed Deen, Tarkan Mustafa and Tobi Jinadu are all up for sale or loan.
“I'm still trying to raise some money, and get the three boys we've listed out. That's coming along reasonably well, but until that happens I can't get anyone in.
“I'm a bit frustrated at the minute, I had hoped to get another two boys in this week and I haven't so it is beginning to frustrate me,” added Brown.
It is believed that the other player Brown is targeting is one that will also be familiar to Shots fans.
Brown is said to be keen to reclaim the youngster on loan as cover for the injury-plagued John Brough, but with several other Conference clubs chasing the 20-year-old, Brown will have to wait to see if he can get his man.
