Bolton Wanderers boss Owen Coyle doesn't expect to buy big in January.
Coyle admits he will not be buying his way out of trouble.
"I've not had money anywhere I have been before," he told the Bolton News. "I came to the club two years ago, second-bottom of the league, and never spent a penny.
"We had to be inventive bringing in Stuart Holden, Jack Wilshere and Vladimir Weiss.
"If you don't have money, then there are ways and means of improving your team.
"If we do have the luxury of spending money, then great, but it's not something I'm beating myself up about.
"Whatever hand you are dealt you make the best of it.
"I'm at a fantastic club with great people and we all have to make sure we get ourselves out of the dangerous area we're in."
