West Brom boss Allardyce confirms he wants a striker

West Brom boss Sam Allardyce admits he needs to sign one striker - or more - in January for a chance of beating the drop.

Despite Sunday's point at Liverpool, West Brom still remain 19th and Allardyce is pretty clear what needs to change.

"Looking at the situation we are in, it's not difficult to see we need to change the goals against tally.

"We're the highest in the league in terms of goals conceded (along with Leeds) and when you look at our goals scored, I think that's 11 in total. Obviously that's not enough.

"We have to increase our goal tally, but getting clean sheets is the first priority as it means that just one goal would win us a game instead of us drawing.

"We've only had one win this season and that's why we're in the position we're in, and somewhere along the line we need to try and start winning games.

"That will come by defensive structure, getting more clean sheets and hopefully more goals in the end."
