Exeter boss Paul Tisdale will scour the loan market for new recruits - but will only sign players if they are right for the club.
The Grecians have struggled for goals this year, managing to net just three times in six league games, and that can be attributed to a mini injury crisis which has robbed them of several forwards.
But Tisdale brought Rowan Vine in from QPR on loan and Richard Logan and Daniel Nardiello are back to full fitness.
When asked if he would be bringing in players when the loan window opened, Tisdale told the Western Morning News: "I would like to, but it has to be the right player. There is no point us getting a player just for the sake of it.
"Our lads want to do well, they are not lacking in attitude or motivation. They are fully committed and I don't want to bring someone in to play for the sake of punishing one of our lads in the process. I am not there to punish them.
"There is no threat that I am looking to bring someone in to replace them because I am behind all of our chaps. They are all trying hard and, if I bring someone in, it has to be someone with a real purpose and a clear-cut advantage to our team."
