Alex Tettey said Norwich City's 0-0 stalemate at home to Nottingham Forest left him and his teammates hugely frustrated.
The draw was City's fifth in succession in the league and their second successive goalless one at home and Tettey could not hide his disappointment after the match.
"Playing five games and taking five points is not what we want," the City midfielder admitted.
"It's frustrating playing well and not scoring goals. It's not what you want.
"We are lacking a bit of anticipation in front of goal and for someone to be there at the right time and the right moment.
"We just need to find some solutions to it. We are desperately trying to get some goals and get three points and hopefully move up the table as much as we can."
The draw stretched City's unbeaten run to 14 matches but Tettey said the players are itching to turn their solitary points into victories.
"Normally if you're not losing games, you're winning and getting more points than we are," he added.
"But one point in the Championship will not get you anywhere. There are some big teams in this league who are winning games.
"We need to keep working and keep our heads up and hopefully in our next game we can push to get the three points."
