Chris Powell says he’ll be looking for another striker after the return of loan man Grant Holt to Wigan Athletic.
But he is backing Nahki Wells to build on his 10-goal tally after his late strike sealed a 2-1 home come-from-behind win over Bolton Wanderers.
“Nahki will get games and will score goals,” said Powell, after the 24-year-old came off the bench to notch for the first time since November 1.
“He is an important player.
“He might not think that when he doesn’t start but I know 100 per cent what he is capable of.
“We have to make sure we have the platform for him to play and score goals.”
Powell, who started with James Vaughan and Harry Bunn as his front two, added: “We are light up front and we will be looking to strengthen in January.”
