Kenny Dalglish has reiterated his stance on the Liverpool strikeforce, and again dismissed suggestions he will be looking to the transfer market for a player in the position in January.

The Reds dominated for large periods against QPR at the weekend, but were forced to settle for a 1-0 win as Luis Suarez's second-half strike proved to be the difference between the two sides.

'King Kenny' was quick to point out that Radek Cerny was in inspired form for the visitors, and whilst his side missed a handful of good chances, the Scot is confident more is around the corner.

"We did miss some chances, yes, but the goalkeeper saved a lot of them too. Irrespective of what I say, it's not going to stop speculation we are going out in January to sign Joe Bloggs up front, or whoever. I don't need to say anything," Dalglish told the official Liverpool website.

"For us it was a fantastic team performance. We are quite happy. I trust the players implicitly when it comes to scoring, implicitly.

"They continued to get in there on goal, and even with the 'keeper having a good day, they didn't drop their heads. They must be enjoying what they are doing, to continue playing like that, and creating chances like that.

"One day, creating chances like that, we are going to get a load...or we are going to be garbage, and win 1-0. And I think that will do us."

Reflecting on the overall performance, Dalglish was delighted with the style-of-play showcased by his side on Merseyside, particularly in the first 45 minutes against Neil Warnock's side.

And, whilst the wins have been in relatively short supply on home turf, Dalglish is confident things will quickly change if the performances continue to be of such a high-level.

"I think some of the football we played in the first half was brilliant, and we won't change our beliefs or the way we play. That's why we brought the players here in the first place, and we will stick to those principles," he added.

"Our performance was fantastic, and the only thing missing was the goals that confirm that. If you look at home performances they have been fantastic, look at points...maybe not. There is not a game we have played here that we couldn't have won, we shouldn't have won.

"Performance wise, we don't have any problem whatsoever, goals - yeah, we'd love more, and we'll get more."
