Swindon manager Paolo Di Canio has said he fears his team's bid for a second successive promotion could be wrecked if he is unable to bring in more players during the emergency loan window and warned: "I am not God."
Swindon are subject to a transfer embargo, and the Italian knows injuries and suspensions could soon take their toll on the campaign.
The embargo was imposed after documents revealed that the League One club's spending on salaries and player fees had exceeded the maximum allowance of 65% of turnover, and the Swindon Advertiser reported Di Canio as saying: "I am sure that the manager counts a lot.
"I can improve my players maybe 25%, but I am not God. I am one of the best managers, but I am not God."
Di Canio is having to deal with a run of injury problems at the Wiltshire club and said: "If you have one injury, okay, if you have two injuries, okay, but if you have four or five it is different.
"Obviously we have the subs, but a long run can be more difficult. It will be difficult in the long run with some injuries."
