Mansfield Town boss Duncan Russell hopes to bring in one or two loan signings to help his injury-hit squad.
The Stags only had three players on the bench for Tuesday's defeat at Crawley.
And they face a hectic end-of-season run-in, with 10 Blue Square Bet Premier fixtures to fulfil in April and an FA Trophy final date at Wembley on 7 May.
Russell told BBC Radio Nottingham: "We are unlucky to have so many out injured at one time so we have to strengthen. We need more strength in depth."
