Trinity boss determined to keep his loan stars at the Northolme
Steve Housham hopes to hang on to his loan stars in a bid to continue his side's upturn in fortunes.
The Gainsborough Trinity manager says confidence is flooding back to the club and the new additions have helped stop the rot.
Trinity suffered a terrible start to their Skrill North campaign, losing their first six games.
However, Housham's dealings in the loan market initially brought in young strikers Conner Robinson from Lincoln City and Rhys Oates from Barnsley.

Both have been a breath of fresh air according to Housham, who is now planning on extending their stays at the Northolme.
"The loan period of both of those players is almost coming to an end," said Housham.
"But they have been a breath of fresh air, they have given us a lift and I want to extend their stays with us if I can.
"They are both good players and are getting better with the matches they are playing so I will be looking at extending their stay this week."
The Trinity boss also appears to have unveiled another gem, this time to boost his defensive options.
A series of disappointing mistakes at the back led Housham to dip back into the loan market where he discovered Sheffield Wednesday youngster Taylor McKenzie.
And, in the two games the 19-year-old centre half has started, Trinity have won one and drawn one.
"Taylor McKenzie was excellent for us again at Worcester City," said Housham.
"He's a very good player and he is another one I would like to keep here for a bit longer."
Housham insists his side were unlucky not to return from the midweek clash with Worcester with all three points.
"I came home from that game feeling we were robbed of another three points," Housham added.
"They were awarded a penalty deep into stoppage time which was never a penalty – even their bench couldn't believe it.
"I felt so sorry for the players and for the fans who had travelled down there. We worked so hard and were moments away from a second successive win.
"Dom Roma defended the situation perfectly, he was strong and did everything right. I have no idea how the referee could award a penalty.
"I was fuming. It was an atrocious decision."
Housham, though, says the mood in the camp has improved enormously and the team will travel to Leamington on Saturday in a far brighter frame of mind than this time last week.
"It is better now and confidence is flooding back," said the Blues boss.
"We lost six on the bounce and that gets to you no matter who you are. We were down in the dumps, but we go to Leamington unbeaten in two matches and we intend to extend that little run."
