Burton Albion manager Paul Peschisolido says his side must develop a ruthless streak in front of goal.
The Brewers were held to a 1-1 draw by fellow League Two play-off hopefuls Oxford United on Sunday.
But Peschisolido said they should have secured victory before the visitors grabbed a second-half equaliser.
"We'd like to see the boys bury a team. We can't seem to kill a team off. In the first half they didn't have a touch," he told BBC Radio Derby.
Burton are ninth in the table but would have moved above Oxford an into the play-off positions had they won on Sunday.
And Peschisolido feels it was a missed opportunity: "We had so much possession and the style of football we played in the first half was absolutely magnificent.
"We got on the ball, we passed it and our movement was magnificent. We just attacked and attacked and attacked.
"If we had got the second goal then that game would have probably been finished.
"If it's only 1-0 in the second half then there is always that opportunity for a moment of brilliance and an equaliser and that is what happened.
"In the second half we conceded the goal and stopped doing what we did in the first half, which was making the pitch wide and passing it, and that cost us."
