Burton Albion manager Nigel Clough won't be wasting any time when the Brewers arrive back at the Pirelli Stadium following Wednesday night's Carabao Cup tie with Oldham Athletic.
Clough revealed on Tuesday morning that he and his staff will be straight on the phone to the sides who are dumped out of the Carabao Cup in search of new players to beef up a thin Albion squad.
Having already brought in seven new signings this season - most recently taking Middlesbrough goalkeeper Connor Ripley on a season-long loan on Monday - Clough is still after players who can make a difference to the Brewers.
And one man he has already identified is Tom Flanagan - who re-signed for the Brewers earlier this afternoon on a two-year deal having rejected one earlier in the summer.
But Clough is now looking to use the loan market - an area that he knows very well indeed - to bolster his ranks.
Albion used the loan market to devestating effect last term, securing the services of the likes of John Brayford, Michael Kightly and Cauley Woodrow to help propel them clear of an immediate return to League One.
Kightly's winners against Norwich City and Leeds United proved priceless - and even Tottenham Hotspur loanee Will Miller, who didn't see a great deal of match-time due to a cap on loan players in a matchday squad, did his bit and rescued a valuable point away at Wolves last September with a last-minute goal.
Clough is well aware of how important the loan market can be - with teams desperate for players to leave their squad for one reason or another, and some teams even willing to pay part of the wages of those players.
Which is why Clough and his backroom staff will waste no time in trying to get those players in from other club ahead of Saturday's trip to newly-relegated Hull City.
"We'll be following up on calls and a couple of the targets might well be playing in the Carabao Cup tomorrow night," Clough said at Tuesday's press conference.
"A lot of the teams use the squads at this time, just like we will be tomorrow night.
"So they give the fringe players a game and then if they do get knocked out they might not need them after that.
"Of course the other way is if they do get through to another round before the window, they might want to keep them for another two weeks. "
