Huddersfield Town have had a pleasing week after the turbulent start to the season with the appointment of Chris Powell as the permanent successor to Mark Robins as manager coming hot on the heels of the deadline-day signing of Mark Hudson from Cardiff City.

The club's transfer work has been impressive given former boss Mark Robins' decision to leave the club after the 4-0 opening-day defeat to Bournemouth and they have secured three signings since then in Jacob Butterfield, Jack Robinson (loan) and Hudson.

But doubts persist about whether or not the club have enough options up front, particularly given James Vaughan's injury troubles in recent seasons and the burden it could place on Nahki Wells in his first full season at the club.

And, with the emergency loan window opening next Tuesday September 9, here are six strikers Powell could turn if he wishes to bolster his frontline.

Chris Wood

It may appear a slightly ambitious target given his current Premier League standing, but there are no guarantees he will receive regular game time this season, with Leonardo Ulloa top dog at the King Power Stadium.

Wolves could not get a deal over the line for the New Zealand international but Powell has contacts from his time in charge of the Foxes and would hope that might have an influence in negotiations if Town were to pursue a move.

Adam Armstrong

In stark contrast to Wood is Armstrong, in that he is just 17 years old and very much a player of tomorrow and not today, with Wood itching for a move for first-team football, while the Newcastle United starlet could be given the chance to realise that level of the game.

He has impressed for the Magpies' various youth sides and Alan Pardew may decide a loan move is the best course of action for his development.

Danny Graham

He has already been linked with a host of Championship clubs, including Leeds United and Middlesbrough, but Graham would certainly represent everything the club need in terms of an alternative option up front.

He has a physical presence, is good aerially and also neat in his link-up play so he would fit perfectly in that he offers differing attributes to the club's current attacking roster.

Marcello Trotta

The Championship is also a division Town may wish to exploit, given the majority of their summer signings have come from clubs at the same level and Trotta is one who would look to prove a point.

He excelled on loan at Brentford last year but they have not taken up the option to go for him once again and, having submitted a transfer request at Fulham during the close season, it is clear he wants a move away to get some minutes under his belt.

Jermaine Easter

Restricted to just Capital One Cup appearances so far this season, Easter could also prove a shrewd loan deal from Millwall given his experience at this level.

He will not play second fiddle - more third, fourth or fifth - after the loan signing of Mathias Ranegie from Watford. Town missed the boat with the giant Swedish forward but Easter seems certain to go now.

Grant Holt

Town have recruited experience in Hudson and in Holt they would increase it tenfold considering the goals he has scored in the Championship for Norwich City and Wigan Athletic.

But the Latics have brought in Oriol Riera and Andy Delort to lead the line now and with Marc Antoine Fortune also in his path to the first-team, he seems certain to move on soon, particularly after failing to impress in a brief cameo in his side's 2-1 defeat to Burton Albion in the Capital One Cup.

Like Easter and Trotta, Holt is desperate to prove his stock once more after seeing it take a huge dent by the arrival of new frontmen.
