Kilmarnock: Miles Addison and Alex Henshall add 'power and pace'

Kilmarnock manager Lee Clark hopes to have added "power and pace" to his relegation-threatened squad by securing Miles Addison and Alex Henshall.

Defender Addison and winger Henshall, who played under Clark at Blackpool, have signed until the summer.

"We were looking to bring power and pace into the group," said Clark.

"They are not going to be coming in and fully fit and ready to play 95 minutes straight off. But that's the problem we are dealing with."

The 27-year-old Addison has only made three appearances this season during a short-term spell with Peterborough United.

And 22-year-old Henshall was released in January by Ipswich Town after failing to make an appearance this term.

Clark hopes the pair can quickly gain fitness, citing recent signing Julien Faubert as an example.

"Miles Addison obviously brings power at 6ft 3in, a very strong, physical centre-half or defensive midfield player," he said.

"We were running short on defenders with David Syme, Mark Connolly and Stevie Smith being out for the season.

"And Alex is more slight in his frame, but he is very, very quick and we are hoping he can make an impact for us at the other end."
