Brentford boss Mark Warburton has shelved plans to add a defender to his squad.
Warburton wanted to bring in cover before the transfer window closed last week, but turned his efforts to signing a new striker instead after a long-term injury to Scott Hogan.
And with the versatile Nico Yennaris able to fill in at full-back and Tony Craig, Harlee Dean and James Tarkowski battling for the two central spots, the Bees boss will wait until January rather than dipping into the loan market.
He said: "If we go out and bring in another defender now what are we saying to the guys we've already got here. There's six defenders for four starting spots.
"At right back we have Alan McCormack, Nico Yennaris and Mo [Odubajo], so we've got options. On the left we have Jake Bidwell, Nico and Tony Craig.
"Then in the middle there's Tarky [James Tarkowski], Tony and Harlee Dean, plus Kevin O'Connor and Alan McCormack if there was an emergency.
"We don't need another body at the moment, but if we get an injury or suspension we'll have to review it."
