Brentford manager Uwe Rosler will be scouring the loan market for reinforcements with injuries piling up at Griffin Park.
Winger Sam Saunders and defenders Leon Legge and Shaleum Logan are all facing spells on the sidelines while Toumani Diagouraga and Kirk Hudson are long-term absentees.
Rosler did not add to his squad on transfer deadline day and will now wait for the loan window to open next week.
"Our squad is very thin at the moment and we have to wait until the loan market opens," said Rosler.
"We need at least one player, probably two."
