"We thought we might get something done before tomorrow's game but we will be patient"
Stuart Taylor said Town are hopeful they will make their first signing of the January transfer window over the next few days.
Idris El Mizouni has returned from a loan spell at Cambridge United, with Kai Brown, Bailey Clements and Barry Cotter also returning from loan moves, but Blues are yet to bring in their first new addition.
In terms of departures, central defender Corrie Ndaba has joined Scottish Championship side Ayr United on loan for the remainder of the campaign.
"Hopefully something will happen over the next few days. If it does, fantastic," Town's assistant manager said.
"We thought we might get something done before tomorrow's game, but we will be patient.
"The players we sign need to improve what we already have. We want to be more creative so those are the types of players we are looking to bring in."
