AS Efe Sodje returned to Town action in a practice match today, busy manager Peter Jackson confirmed he has no immediate plans for fresh signings.
Despite a run of just three points from 12 and exits from two cup competitions in the last month, Jackson is holding fire on new faces.
Town are not back in action until a week tomorrow down at Swindon, but striker Andy Booth is already rated very doubtful for the County Ground trip because of the badly swollen ankle he suffered in the 2-1 defeat by Wrexham, while Steve Yates has not been ruled out until the results of a scan on his thigh problem.
Jackson, who last night watched Newcastle Reserves at home to Manchester City, commented:
"It's obviously a worry on the injury front, but I'm not looking to bring in any fresh faces at the moment - I'm fully backing the lads we've already got.
"Our performance was very, very disappointing on Saturday, but we've got plenty of quality in our squad and I believe in that quality."
After failing in attempts to arrange a friendly against local non-League opposition this week, Jackson was playing his Reserves against the Academy at Storthes Hall today.
Sodje - whose only activity during a four-match ban was a friendly international for Nigeria against South Africa in Johannesburg - was playing alongside Nat Brown and John McCombe for the Reserves, with Anthony Lloyd and Rob Edwards filling the wing-back roles.
Lee Fowler and Adnan Ahmed were included in the midfield, with Junior Mendes and John McAliskey up front.
"I was keen for the lads who haven't been getting a game to have a run-out, especially with there being no fixture in the Pontin's League this week," said Jackson, who will watch Oldham tackle Leyton Orient in the FA Cup on Saturday ahead of the League trip to Boundary Park on December 11.
"The non-League sides we approached for a game all had commitments of one sort and another, so we'll work through a game on the training ground instead.
"The lads who have been in the first team won't be having it easy, though, because having had a tough session yesterday, they will be having another."
Striker Akpo Sodje, who has been suffering a thigh injury, is now running again and could rejoin full training later this week.
