Doncaster Rovers manager Paul Dickov is hoping to delve into the loan market after a series of injuries in defence.
Dickov is confident of being granted transfer funds to bolster his squad despite the resignation of chairman John Ryan, who helped sanction 11 summer signings.
After Yun Suk-Young's training ground injury ruled him out until Christmas, Dickov's makeshift back four battled to a hard-earned clean sheet at Barnsley on Saturday but the Scot insists his side need new recruits.
"I'm confident I will get that support," Dickov told the Star.
"As well as my relationship with John, I've got a great relationship with the existing board, especially the chief executive.
"Underneath the back four that played on Saturday we've got Liam Wakefield and then not a lot else. So I think it's important we have to strengthen that area."
