Midfielder Robbie Garrett has rejoined Wrexham on a three-month loan deal from Stoke City with a view to extending it until the end of the season.
Wrexham manager Brian Carey has turned for help
The 19-year-old played a part in last season's relegation battle and manager Brian Carey is keen to have him back.
"He's got a great fighting spirit and that's exactly what we need," he said. "He gives us something we haven't got."
Meanwhile, former Wales international Dean Saunders has taken a training session with the club's strikers.
The squad are to face a Lincoln team on Saturday who are also struggling at the bottom of League Two.
And Carey knows nothing less than a win will do.
"We can make all the excuses in the world, but we've got to start winning games," he said. "That's the bottom line.
"I've told the players to forget everything else about what may or may not happen in the future, just go out there and turn up against Lincoln and do what they did in the last couple of games which is they turned up and had a go.
"I know if they do that, we'll be ok."
I will use any bit of expertise that's out there to get the job done
Carey admits there is pressure, but he said no-one should be concentrating on his future.
"What's going on here is not about me, it's about the club doing well and surviving and whatever I do doesn't come into the equation in terms of my future," he added.
"Everyone is speculating about this, that and the other but that's not important. What's important is the team winning games."
He was also keen to play down Saunders' role in Thursday's training session, saying it was a "casual" arrangement as opposed to a permanent one.
"As I said when I took the job, I will use any bit of expertise that's out there to get the job done," he said.
"Dean is another one has come in and given us a hand and we are grateful to him for that."
And goalkeeper Anthony Williams issued a rallying call to the rest of the players ahead of Saturday's crunch match.
"Everyone has got to stand up now on Saturday and fight for the team," he said.
"Every cross, every shot both ends, put your head where it hurts. We can't carry any bodies.
"There's no panic. Everyone is confident in the dressing room."
