Torquay defender Guy Branston has backed manager Paul Buckle to keep plundering the loan market.
The Gulls boss already has four players on loan and this week agreed a deal to sign Ipswich striker Ronan Murray until the end of the season.
The 19-year-old should be available for Saturday's crucial home game against fourth-placed Shrewsbury, when the Gulls will aim to bounce back from Tuesday's 1-0 defeat at Aldershot.
Torquay go into the game eighth, five points off the play-off places, and Branston is happy for more loan signings to come on board during the run-in.
"It's good, it keeps everyone on their toes," he told skysports.com. "It keeps me hungry, it keeps everybody hungry.
"You have to look at it as a positive thing because who doesn't want to be promoted at the end of the season?"
Joe Oastler has been on loan from QPR since October while Jake Robinson (Shrewsbury) and Craig Stanley (Morecambe) have come straight into the side since joining in January.
And 21-year-old midfielder Ben Pringle made an impressive debut in Saturday's 2-0 win over Stevenage after signing last week from Derby.
"They've come in and done what's been asked of them and adjusted to our way of thinking," said Branston.
"We know what we're doing - I've been here a year now - but the young lads that have come in like Pringle and Robinson, it's all different to them."
Buckle is even mulling over making permanent moves for some of the loanees during the summer and he has sought Branston's opinion given the much-travelled centre-half is one of his most senior players.
"The gaffer's asked me about a couple of the lads and my honest opinion is they've been good signings," said the 32-year-old. "I've told him they're very good around the football club, they act well and are good professionals, so if we can get them on proper contracts then let's go and sign them.
"I can understand why Jake wasn't playing at Shrewsbury because they've got two very good forwards and he hadn't been scoring for a while, but he's a hell of a player, even on the wing. He's come in and done amazing for us.
"I've played against Pringle a few times when I was at Burton and he was in Derby's reserves and I've always raved about him, but it's up to the manager who he signs."
