Dennis Greene has threatened to make changes to his Boston United squad unless things improve on the pitch.
Saturday’s 3-2 defeat at Stockport County compounded a miserable week for the Pilgrims, who shipped 10 goals during two defeats.
And Greene cut an unhappy figure as he dissected those two losses at Edgeley Park.
“I can’t keep expecting performances like that, we’re better than that,” he said.
“What Boston’s all about is enthusiasm and team spirit, in it together and working our socks off, and that’s what got us our rewards last year.
“I think the last two or three games, because we haven’t got the right results, a few heads have gone down.
“I’m not going to have those people around my squad.
“Players will need to do a bit better otherwise there will be changes.”
Before Tuesday’s 7-2 defeat to Oxford City, United had the chance to got top of the Vanrama North, but as the weekend concluded the Pilgrims were in seventh spot.
However, Greene believes things can be turned around.
He added: “It’s not all doom and gloom, we’ve got 14 points.
“Guiseley, after 10 games last year, had about six points - and they made the play-offs.
“We’re by no means off the pace, put two wins back-to-back and you’re back in it.”
