Worksop Town assistant manager Craig Denton admitted his side paid the bprice for costly errors in their 4-1 defeat to Bridlington Town.
Bridlington hit the front in the 38th minute through Chris Adams’ composed finish, before they doubled their lead one minute into the second half.
They wrapped the points up by the 70th minute after substitute Brett Agnew hit a brace in quick succession.
The Tigers did pull back a consolation on the 76th minute through Scott Wesley’s header from an in-swinging corner but ultimately it was a disappointing afternoon.
And Denton knows his side had no-one to blame but themselves.
“I was disappointed. I thought the first 15 minutes was okay, but there was still a few individual errors,” he said.
“I can’t blame just one player it was a poor team performance overall. I thought the service up to the strikers was poor and we suffered as a result of that.”
Denton is fully aware of the quality Bridlington have and admitted his side struggled to break their momentum.
He added: “You can’t take your foot off the pedal against a side like this, we could only name two subs and it puts us under the cosh against tough opposition such as Bridlington, especially when their season is in full flow.
“We knew it would be a difficult end to the season and we’ve lost some key players and had to turn to our development side, still though, we need to show more desire and work rate collectively.”
Attention now turns to next weekend’s game against Barton Town Old Boys where the Tigers will be looking to put an end to their now four match winless run,
Adam Scott’s suspension has elapsed and the winger should be involved next weekend along with Jack Hawkins, who should have recovered from illness.
