Boro boss Graham Westley has been given the go-ahead to bring someone in on loan and has until 5pm today to make it happen.
Westley had previously been told he had to adopt a 'one in, one out' strategy but Boro's run to the FA Trophy final has loosened the purse strings making a loan signing possible.
Several trialists have appeared in reserve team games recently, most notably Preston youngster Phil Appiah and Norwich City winger Robert Eagle, and Westley could bring one of these in for the rest of the season if he can beat the 5pm deadline.
However, Westley warned that he would not sign someone just for the sake of it. They would have to convince him they could hit the ground running and immediately aid the club in their push for the play-offs.
"The directors and the chairman have said to me that I can do something if I want to," Westley told The Comet. "They've been good in that regard but you've got to be careful about doing the right thing.
"There's no point bringing someone in who is not going to have a big part to play. Availability of players is limited and I'm not going to sign someone just for the sake of it.

"There have been two or three lads that we've been taking a look at and one or two will be training with us again this week but there's nothing that I can talk about now with any real intention.
"We are looking at one or two things and something might happen before the deadline. I'm certainly not in a panic to make it happen. If I don't do anything then I won't be worried.
