Wild had previously said he would not bring in any new players while the future of the season was undecided.

But with the National League season set to be played to a conclusion, the Town manager is now waiting for the nod from the club for him to make some additions.

“I’d like to. I’m waiting for the club to decide if we can, if that’s feasible and viable,” he said.

“I’m down to the last 15 (fit) boys now which isn’t great.

“But I’ll be led by the club and hopefully by the end of the week I’ll know whether we can recruit.

“In Utopia, I’d like to recruit a last couple for the end of the season, just to keep us going.

“In the original budget, I’d budgeted for bringing in a couple for a last push but I have to appreciate that we’re not going to get any more money in and finances are very tight as a club. They were before but even more so now we know what’s going on.

“I need to be led by the club and respect the club’s decision on what happens with that.”

Wild says attacker Jack Dunn is still training with the club.

“I’d like to have all that sorted this week and know what my team is moving forward for the last push.”

Some National League clubs have started to sign National League North and South players on loan after their leagues called a halt to their season.

“It’s an option,” said Wild on Town doing the same.

“My phone’s been like the Bat Phone since Thursday with offers of players.

“We’d like to, that would be an option, but I need to be led by how the club see things in that respect.”
