Stephen Dobbie is the only one of the strikers to score this season as the club have endured a tricky start to life under Paulo Sousa.
But Pintado believes a "silly" goal could be all that it takes to get them back on track.
"It just didn't fall for us against Bristol City (on Tuesday)," Pintado told the South Wales Evening Post.
"We worked to try to get some goals. They didn't come but all we can do now is keep on working hard.
"They have to come. I don't know when but they have to come. Maybe we will score one silly goal and that will get us going."
