Manager Paul Tisdale has not ruled out drafting in a late loan recruit for his injury-hit Exeter team.
Tisdale is currently without strikers Daniel Nardiello and Guillem Bauza, full-back Billy Jones and midfielder Matt Oakley ahead of the busy festive period.
And he said he would consider a temporary signing before the window closes on Thursday, so long as he came at the right price.
"There's possibly a need for somebody at the moment," Tisdale told BBC Devon.
"But if we can do that, as always with us, it has to be at the right value because we haven't got too much to spend."
