Jonathan Greening believes West Brom need to sign a few experienced players in the January transfer window.
The Baggies are currently bottom of the Premier League table with 11 points from 14 games, while they have scored just 10 goals.
Greening accepts that West Brom do not have the same strength in depth as many other sides, and hopes manager Tony Mowbray will bring in reinforcements when the transfer window reopens.
"It's important," he told the Birmingham Mail. "We might need a little bit more experience up front and maybe at the back again.
"If we can bring two or three quality players in to add to the squad it will always help.
"We have got a lot of young players in the squad so maybe some more experienced faces are what is needed."
West Brom lost to Stoke at the weekend and Greening realises the importance of responding in the right manner at Wigan on Saturday.
The Latics are also languishing in the relegation zone and Greening has urged his team-mates to capitalise on any weaknesses.
"The next few games are massive and we need to bounce back against Wigan and try to put on a good show," he said.
"Wigan have some physical players but they are maybe not as physical as Stoke.
"Hopefully we can get the ball down and try to play a bit more and get a positive result. We need to start putting points on the board."
