Yeovil Town manager Gary Johnson does not expect to add to his squad before the weekend but admitted he has a list of contacts if the situation changes.
The Glovers boss told today's Western Gazette that he still wants to bring in further loanees to bolster numbers hit by injury.
Both Lewis Young (calf) and Gozie Ugwu (hamstring) face approximately a month on the sidelines, with Gavin Williams (calf) unable to train and play in the same week.
However, Johnson added this afternoon that he was unlikely to add another new face ahead of Saturday's visit to npower League One table-toppers Tranmere Rovers.
"Not before the weekend, no," said Johnson. "But sometimes things happen really quickly or you get a phone call and you have to deal with it with a yes or a no. At this moment in time there is nothing happening right now.
"It doesn't stop us contacting people, talking to managers, talking to coaches and just generally being busy. That's what we are and we are ok.
"We have people that we trust and people that recommend us. If they know what we are looking for they will come back to us and let us know.
"Whether you have got an 18-man squad or a 50-man squad you have still got to be out there trying to improve the squad."
The Glovers head north on the back of a 3-1 triumph over Colchester United that ended a six-game run of defeats. Johnson was quick to stress his team still had plenty of work to do.
He said: "Moods are always lifted by wins, more so for the management. It was a good win as well and that is why we are all going around with a smile on our faces.
"At the same time one game doesn't put everything right. We have got to keep working as hard as we have done to get results at this level."
