The Whites boss is determined to add to his squad which has not saluted in six matches and currently sits 15th on the tier two table and it is believed a new face will be added prior to the weekend's meeting with Watford.
"I'm trying to bring another player into the club and hoping we can do that in time for the game this weekend. I think we just need freshening up and I'd love to get someone in," he said.
"We talked on Wednesday. The odd change here or there would lift everybody. All we need are certain areas performing. There's not a lot that needs doing. I think it's like a car that's just missing on the old carburettor. I think you need to get the screwdriver out and gently tighten it.
"I don't think there's a lot wrong and that's why I would love to get the player I want in this week because I think that would give everybody a massive lift. If I could get his particular player in I would forsake anybody else until the (transfer) window opens again."
