Reaching the play-off final last term marked a huge achievement for Moyes and his team, but the North End coach acknowledges the need for reinforcements if The Lilywhites are to mount a serious promotion bid.
"There are plenty of games still left but we know we have to strengthen the squad and we'll be continuing to look for new players to do so," stated the Scot.
Preston were largely inactive in the summer transfer market with £500,000 signing Richard Cresswell the only new arrival at Deepdale, but Moyes did manage to hang on to star strikers David Healy and Jonathan Macken amid interest from Division One rivals.
Promotion contenders Watford, Manchester City and Coventry City have all added new blood to their respective squads in the close season and Moyes no doubt feels Preston must follow suit to be challenging for a place in The Premiership come May.
