ROY Keane has revealed that he won't be trying to sign an unregistered keeper.

The Irishman will instead stick with Arran Lee-Barrett in goal for tomorrow's match at Bristol City, with youth teamer Ian McLoughlin on the bench.

Town cannot sign a new keeper on an emergency loan deal from another club, following the transfer window closing last week, even though Richard Wright is out for four months with a knee injury.

There would be the possibility of signing a keeper who is a free agent and has not been registered with a club since the end of August.

But Keane insisted: "I'm not going down the route of looking for an unregistered keeper. Instead, I'm looking at a possible loan keeper down the line, if Arran was to get injured."
