Michael Laudrup says it is crucial Swansea bring in another striker or he may have to dust down his boots and come out of retirement.
Swansea have been rocked by the loss of injured stars Michu and Nathan Dyer and the need to bring in a new attacker was evident against Aston Villa when they missed a host of chances and had to settle for a point.
Laudrup is keen to give his fringe players a chance but says reinforcements are needed as any further injuries would leave them very short at a crucial stage of the season.
"We are down in numbers, we are only 19 right now," Laudrup said.
"It is a balance because if you say we are not scoring goals so we need to sign some attacking players, then what about the ones you have? You are giving them a knock on the head.
"We need to use our squad, but with Michu and Dyer out it is obvious we need one because with a couple of injuries you or I would have to play."
