King's Lynn boss Carl Heggs revealed after Saturday's second consecutive Unibond Premier Division home draw he had lined up former Coventry hitman Iyseden Christie to bolster his shot shy attack.
Gareth Sheldon's fourth of the campaign cancelled out Town midfielder Anthony Hackworth's superb first half opener.
Lynn pinned the visitors back for long spells after the break and were denied a strong penalty claim when Callum Lloyd tumbled inside the box in the closing stages.
Christie will not be available for the Bank Holiday Monday trip to Retford with club officials awaiting international clearance for the 32-year-old who has been plying his trade in Malta.
The powerful Coventry-born hitman played for Orient and Mansfield in the Football League after being released by his hometown club.
Christie also played in the Conference Premier for Kidderminster and Kettering. Heggs also confirmed midfielder Matty Birley is a doubt for Monday's trip to Nottinghamshire after limping out of the action with an ankle problem.
