Jim Bentley is stepping up the search for new additions to his Morecambe squad.
Bentley's attempts to bring in an unnamed npower League One forward hit a stumbling block this week and the Shrimps boss insists he is targeting reinforcements across a number of positions with a congested fixture list on the horizon.
"I have to look at options all over the park now really because the squad is so tight," he told The Visitor.
Bentley added: "We have used the fewest players in League Two this season and with a host of midweek games coming up we might get a few knocks while those who have played nearly every game this season become a bit more liable to injury and we have to look after them.
"We have two trips to London next week and I would like to freshen things up a bit for those games which will both be tough trips."
Morecambe travel to AFC Wimbledon this weekend before heading further south to Crawley on Wednesday.
