IAN Holloway believes a lack of "chemistry and understanding" up front is the reason behind Millwall's goal drought.
The Lions have scored just five goals in Holloway's nine games in charge, a statistic which has left the Millwall boss searching for the "magic formula" in his squad.
Holloway says that his forward players are yet to click together in the same way prolific duo Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge have for Liverpool this season.
But he also feels that the pressure of a relegation battle is causing his strikers to tense up.
"It is hard to play and to relax when things aren't going well, particularly for your expansive and instinctive players," he said.
"Between all of those players, is there really the chemistry that is needed? Is there a Suarez and Sturridge? Is there that kind of link and understanding?
"I'm not sure there is at the minute, and that's what we're working on. Steve Morison and Simeon Jackson played together at Norwich, so there could be something there.
"Our individual attacking players are very good, but as a group things have not worked and I have got to get the magic formula right."
Holloway says Millwall have been doing everything but score in recent weeks.
"I can see stats reading the right way," he added. "The last time we played Brighton they had 65 percent of the possession, and last Saturday they only had 40 percent.
"Unfortunately the only stat that doesn't read any better is the goals column and everyone in the ground knew that we should have scored at least one."
