MILLWALL'S board will answer manager Ian Holloway's plea for a new striker.
The Lions' narrow 1-0 loss at Blackpool in midweek prompted Holloway to say that he needs another targetman in his squad.
Steve Morison, who could have equalised at Bloomfield Road but saw his penalty saved, was forced off with a sore neck and is a doubt for Saturday's crunch clash with Charlton.
Holloway has also lost DJ Campbell and Jermaine Easter to injury in the past week and now hopes to bring in another forward option in the next 48 hours.
And chief executive Andy Ambler has confirmed funds are available for a loan signing.
"We will do whatever needs to be done to support the manager," Ambler said.
"If Ollie feels that he needs another striker, we will finance him. The only problem I can see in this team is scoring goals, so we have to address that."
Holloway added: "We couldn't win a header after Morison went off so I've got to rectify that.
"Without Steve, we don't have anyone else at the club who can flick the ball on. When you don't have a big man up front to bring the ball down, you can lose your shape.
"I asked Steve to run his injury off but he couldn't do that. We'll get him checked out – touch wood it won't be too serious – but I've got to get another big man in because they are vital.
"In a game like that, you need to be able to hit someone on the head. Blackpool were able to bring on Steve Davies in the second half but we haven't got an option like that."
Scott Malone could return from a hip injury to face the Addicks at The Den but Holloway fears Danny Shittu's Achilles problem is more serious than first thought.
"Malone might have half a chance but we might have a more serious problem with Danny Shittu," the Lions boss said.
"He has got a small tear and is getting it looked at by a specialist, but that doesn't look good at the moment."
Holloway insists his players should not need motivating for the south London derby despite the disappointment of Tuesday's loss.
"I don't have to fire anyone up – their job is to pick themselves up," he said.
"It's a local rival, we can get ourselves out of the mire by beating Charlton and they've just lost their manager, so what more do we want?"
