West Bromwich Albion boss Tony Pulis says it's crucial they land their transfer targets this week.
A disjointed show in the 2-1 Cup victory at Birmingham City rubber-stamped his view that Albion need an immediate injection of quality.
"The Premiership is a bit different to what we faced today," he said.
"We have to get some players in. There are certain weaknesses in the team. "The team is unbalanced.
"It was good to have a good look again today. It is unbalanced in a way that we have to sort out because we have to put certain things in place to make us a team that is going to be good in possession and good out of possession.
"That has to be done, so it is a big ten days. It is a massive ten days for the football club in respect of what we do.
"And I will just hope and pray that things drop for us."
