He said: "We don't chip in with enough from midfield and centre-half - I dont think a centre-half has scored this year yet - but we'll have to do that because we haven't got a 20-goal-a-season man or a 25-goals man."
However, Warnock knows his players have the right attitude and despite their limitations he believes they are a reliable group.
He added: "A manager can only ask his team to give everything and they do give everything. That's why I enjoy the group of players we've got.
"I would like to have a couple more players but I think every manager is like that. If I spent it I'd probably chuck it away so I might be better off with nothing."
