The Stanley boss signed former Blackburn midfielder Amine Linganzi on Thursday and the 33-year-old is still hoping to increase his options, particularly in attack.
Stanley have netted just 31 times in 32 games this season, but Richardson is convinced that his side can start to move up the table if he can make one or two additions.
"We've been trying for a couple of weeks now to get another wideman or forward player into our team," he told the club's official website.
"We aren't hiding from the fact that we need to score goals. If we can do that I think we'll win more games than we lose."
