Queens Park Rangers manager Neil Warnock admits he could turn to the loan market during the January transfer window.
Warnock's Hoops are currently sitting pretty at the top of the Championship and will remain at the summit for the turn of the year.
It has been a fantastic campaign for Rangers so far and they will be keen to kick on and secure promotion to the Premier League between now and May, having already finalised a deal for Norwegian left winger Petter Vaagan Moen to join in January
Warnock admits anyone coming into Loftus Road will have to be better than the players already at his disposal, and for that reason the loan market may be the best option.
He told Sky Sports News: "I think we've got to look at who comes available. If someone comes available and we think is going to be better than what we've got or will give us an extra chance to take that step up then we'll go for it and I'll speak to the directors.
"But at the moment there's nothing planned. We're signing a lad from Norway but there's nothing planned as such.
"I think it may be a case of getting a few loan players in - looking at the top-flight clubs and seeing if there's a loan player we can get till the end of the season.
"We're all in the same boat in the Championship - we don't want to spend too much money until everyone knows where you are.
"Sometimes January can be a little misleading. You think you need strengthening in different areas and all of a sudden when you sign them you realise they're not better than what you've had."
QPR thrashed fellow promotion hopefuls Swansea 4-0 on Boxing day and take on Coventry on Tuesday live on Sky Sports 1 and HD1.
Warnock is not taking anything for granted and believes a number of sides can still push for a top-two spot.
"There's about six teams who could gain automatic promotion at the moment, it's levelling out," he added.
"When you look at the table it's much-of-muchness. There's some very good teams, teams who can beat anybody.
"You can't take anything for granted, it's going to be a long season 46 games."
Clint Hill was shown a red card on Boxing Day but Warnock confirmed the club have lodged an appeal against the decision.
