BURTON Albion's downfall so far this season has been the ability to be ruthless in front of goal when it really matters.

Jamie Ward has scored four goals since arriving on loan earlier in the season, but Brewers boss Nigel Clough would like to add some more quality to his squad when the transfer window opens on Sunday.

He said: "We don't desperately need them but we'd like them. We're going to do out best to get that little bit more quality throughout the squad. If you keep getting yourselves in them positions then it will."

Burton Albion have lost their lost four games despite putting in attractive performances both home and away.

Nigel Clough said: "That's the nature of the Championship. We said at the start of the run that they are the four hardest games in the club's history. We have lost all four by the odd goal."

The Brewers will now face up against Rotherham on Thursday before welcoming Preston North End to the Pirelli Stadium on Monday 2 January. Clough has his fingers crossed over the possibility of bringing in a new face before the next home game.

He said: "The next couple are important for us. We can't get anybody in before the Rotherham game but we can before Preston on the 2nd (January) so we will try and get somebody in then."

Monday's goal scorer Jamie Ward was brought off at Villa Park but Nigel Clough says he will be fit for Thursday's clash with Rotherham: "He will be OK, he just took a couple of knocks. When you've got so many games with Jamie, three in quick succession you've just got to be careful with him. We can't afford to lose him."
