Harry Kewell has admitted that Notts County need to bring in another "leader".
The Magpies invested heavily in the summer transfer market but remain third from bottom in League Two, having lost their last three games.
Kewell, who replaced Kevin Nolan early in the campaign, would like to recruit a player who can add to the leadership brought by Jon Stead and Elliott Ward.
“We have a leader in Steady and we have Wardy who has great potential,” the Australian told the Nottingham Post.
“We have Milly who is a talker, but we are needing that leader. If we can get it, we will get it.
“I am angry because we lost [to Swindon Town last week] and God knows how. But that’s football.
"We have to lick our wounds and concentrate on Port Vale this weekend because it’s a huge game.”
