Burnley boss Brian Laws says his players' impressive form have deterred him from dipping into the transfer market for loan signings.
The defensive trio of Clarke Carlisle, Michael Duff and Danny Fox have been absent through suspension or injury at various points over the past fortnight but Laws has found reinforcements within his own squad.
He said: "It's great for me because I know I don't have to worry about picking the phone up thinking I have to bring in a loan player because we've got injuries.
"It gives me a little bit of a headache because we've got good players here and they all want to play.
"We can't play them all and that's the management thing that we have to try and get right, so that the players are still encouraged and still supported even though they're not in the side."
