Leeds United gave under fire strikers Jay-Roy Grot and Pierre-Michel Lasogga a chance against Newport County, and neither took it.
Both forwards have come in for criticism from fans since their summer moves, with the perception being that the strikers lack mobility and quality.
The match against the League Two side was ideal for rebuilding their confidence, but as Leeds crashed to a 2-1 loss, patience is running out.
Meanwhile transfer target Aleksandar Prijovic stepped up his good form at the weekend, scoring his 11th and 12th goals of the season.
Prijovic's brace at the weekend in PAOK's 5-0 win showed that he is worth the Whites taking a gamble on at that price.
Leeds' current striking options are unsatisfactory for a team with promotion aspirations, and Serbia international Prijovic would be an immediate upgrade.
If Leeds have ambition, this weekend should have underlined that now is the moment to make their moves.
