Neil Warnock is eager to strengthen his forward line after losing Ross McCormack

Leeds manager Neil Warnock is pondering several possibilities as he continues his search for a replacement striker following an injury to Ross McCormack.

McCormack, last season's top scorer at Elland Road with 19 goals, is set to be sidelined for up to two months after damaging ankle ligaments and chipping a bone in his ankle in the recent defeat at Cardiff and Warnock is still keen to replenish his strikeforce.

"I don't think we could have signed a better replacement than how Diouf played [against Nottingham Forest] on Saturday," Warnock said.

"He was excellent and probably held the ball up better than Ross would have done in that situation.

"We miss Ross' goals, but still managed to conjure up two and miss a few others, but I'm always looking around and have been for a while now at different types of targets.

"I'm looking at those if we've no money and those if we have money, different catagories because it would be nice wouldn't it, looking at Forest's bench on Saturday, to bring £4million worth of talent on."
