WISBECH Town manager Steve Appleby is looking to bring a defender and a midfielder to the club.
He said: "I've inherited a squad that is a bit unbalanced. I'm playing two strikers up-front, strikers on both wings and have a couple of decent strikers on the bench but have a lack of options in defence and midfield and a left-back is a priority.
"I can't confirm any names yet but hope to make a signing within 10 days."
Appleby enjoyed his first league victory on Saturday when Wisbech beat bottom club Wivenhoe 5-2 at home.
But three goals in the last 10 minutes added gloss to the victory.
Appleby said: "The Wivenhoe players seem to be pulling together in adversity and didn't look like a bottom club. We deserved to win but it was far from comfortable."
