Bradford manager Peter Taylor hopes to draft in another striker on loan before the start of the new season.
Summer signing Jake Speight is not fully fit following his brief prison sentence. James Hanson and Leon Osborne are nursing injuries and Omar Daley is suspended.
Taylor told the club's official website: "I still think we can do with another different forward. You're always looking to improve in that area and hopefully I'm getting a bit closer on that one."
Taylor is also hoping to get the backing from the board at Valley Parade to sign right-back Lewis Hunt as back-up for Simon Ramsden.
He added: "If I'm honest, getting in a right-back and another forward are the two main areas that would help us."
