Exeter City are looking to make at least two signings during the loan window in order to reenergise their ailing season.
The Grecians have lost four of their last five league outings, since an opening day draw against Stevenage.
It is, of course, early days but Paul Tisdale's side find themselves just above the Npower League One relegation zone and will face a stern examination away at Charlton on Saturday.
The acquisition of another striker has been identified as vitally important by Tisdale, after watching his side net on only three occasions in their six league fixtures so far.
A midfield signing is also on the agenda for Exeter, as the Devon club look to use the loan period to their advantage.
"We are looking at a striker and then we have got Liam out. We are missing his drive from midfield," director of football Steve Perryman told the Express and Echo.
"We aren't looking for defenders or goalkeepers, but it could possibly be a midfielder and a striker, although if two strikers we were interested in became available it could be that as well.
"It would be one, possibly two players we are looking at, depending on budgets and so on. That's making no promises - there are no definites, but we are trying."
