Forest have a wealth of talent up front, with Dexter Blackstock, Dele Adebola, David McGoldrick, Robert Earnshaw, Nathan Tyson and Joe Garner all fighting for a starting berth, yet Davies is keen for his midfielders to lessen the burden on his strikers.
"We need goals from midfield. The pressure is now on Paul McKenna, Radoslaw Majewski, Lewis McGugan or Guy Moussi to get goals because we need them." the Scot told the club's official website.
"Majewski can certainly do that and we'll get McKenna changing his game slightly to get more goals.
"But I still think that a box-to-box attacking midfielder is missing."
