Boston United joint-boss Lee Canoville says they are hoping to sign two new strikers in the next week.
Canoville is also hopeful that one may arrive before Saturday's trip to Guiseley in the Blue Square Bet North.
"We've always said we had to be patient for the people we wanted in," he told BBC Lincolnshire.
"It's no good just bringing anyone in and then giving them a game and let them go after two or three games which a lot of teams do."
It is hoped the potential arrivals will bring much-needed firepower to the 11th-placed Pilgrims who have scored just 23 goals in 20 league games this season.
"We're moving in the right direction, but it's taken a little bit longer than everyone would like," added Cannoville.
And he says Boston's lack of clinical finishing cost the Pilgrims in their 1-1 home draw with Corby Town on Tuesday night.
"We played some good stuff, but it's just that last bit at the end, the most important thing, but once we get that right we're going to be a very good side," he said.
