WE CAN'T PUT 90 MINUTES TOGETHER
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law laid into his side after seeing them go down to a 2-0 loss at Nuneaton Town on Saturday, a fourth defeat from the last five league games.
"l think in the first half we should have come in 2-0 (up). Joe Ironside and Jordan Robertson have got to do better with those two chances, and then we spoke at half-time about the little things we had to do, then we've come out and within 45 seconds we've just switched off. We can't put 90 minutes together.
"At the end of the day as a group we're too soft - we're an easy touch - they've got a throw-in there, we've switched off - 1-0 down - and then, the second one, deary me, where would you go and see that again? It's an 80-yard clearance out of their box a boot up the middle - next minute we're all over on the floor and the lad wanders through and scores - you're never going to win a game of football with goals like that - but we're saying the same things again.
"You're never going to get your confidence when you're conceding goals like that - if you put those two chances away, we come in and it's a different mindset - you're 2-0 up - but you don't it's 0-0 and then you go and give goals away like that.
"lt's the same week in, week out and unfortunately until we knock that out we're not going to win a game of football, and l mean this with the utmost respect it doesn't say a lot for us when we've been beaten by an average team in a bang average league.
"And that's what it is - this league is nothing to (what it was) when we won it by ten points. If we had that team now we'd win this League by 30 points, as would Fleetwood, as would probably Telford and the Southport's when we were in. The league is nothing like it wa.
"l can't say too much because we're a struggling team in it and until we man up and find a little bit of fight in us and a bit of desire in us, we're not going to win a game of football.
"We've taken one point in fifteen and for me that's not acceptable."
