Kevin Nolan has admitted that Jorge Grant is getting frustrated due to his downturn in form but stresses that Notts County can't just rely on him all the time.
The 23-year-old has scored 17 goals this season but only one has come this calendar year, which has coincided with the Magpies also stumbling in League Two.
Nolan has addressed Grant's form in his pre-match press conference ahead of Saturday's meeting with Stevenage but wants each player to take full responsibility.
“Jorge has played a lot of games and he is getting a little bit frustrated because he is not in a rich vein of scoring form,” Nolan told the Nottingham Post.
“But it’s not just down to Jorge. We can’t just look to him to get us out of it all the time.
“It has to be a collective responsibility and there are too many of us who are under par week in, week out.
“That’s why we are getting these inconsistencies. You can afford to have two or three, but when you are at seven or eight, then it’s not good enough for us.
“We have to find the right solutions as quickly as possible. Once we do I am sure we will get that confidence high and you will see the best of the boys again.”
