PHIL PARKINSON is not waiting until the new year when it comes to identifying transfer targets.

The Wrexham boss is looking to strengthen his squad when the January transfer window opens and the process of identifying potential new signings to give the Reds' promotion push a boost is well under way.

"We are looking to strengthen and that work is ongoing," said Parkinson.

"We can't wait until January to put those wheels in motion because it can be too late."

Parkinson brought in 10 players before the summer transfer window closed, including the high profile additions of Paul Mullin, Aaron Hayden and Ben Tozer, and has since added midfielder Charlie Trafford, who was a free agent but is yet to feature for the Reds this season, to the ranks.

Saturday's goalless home draw against Wealdstone leaves ninth placed Wrexham 11 points behind leaders Chesterfield with a game in hand, and the Reds boss has identified the positions he wants to strengthen his squad.

"There are a couple of areas which we feel we need to strengthen," added Parkinson, who takes his side to fifth placed Halifax Town tomorrow night.

"I would like to keep those to myself at the moment.

"But there are a couple of areas we want to improve the quality level of what we have to select from."
