Town boss worried by lack of success
Coleshill Urged To Dig Deep To Halt Their Worrying Slide

COLESHILL Town boss Carl Adams says his squad must dig deep to get themselves out of a worrying slump in form.

Back-to-back home defeats to Heather St John and Gresley Rovers mean Coleshill have lost five out of the last seven Midland Alliance fixtures.

That run of two points from 21 has left Adams looking over his shoulder at the relegation zone.

And it doesn't get any easier as Coleshill host Boldmere St Michaels on Saturday before travelling to Westfields on Tuesday night.

"We need to stick together and dig in now because we need to get ourselves out of this slump," Adams said.

"It's becoming a horrendous run now, to be honest.

"It's a strange situation in a way, though, because we are actually playing some decent football. Against Heather, we were the better team but lost 3-2. We showed a lot of naivety, twice going ahead but then conceding immediately.

"And then we gave them a bizarre goal after we allowed their keeper to score by not dealing with a bouncing clearance

"Against Gresley on Tuesday (a 2-0 defeat) we matched a side – who will probably win the league – for long periods but then had a man sent off and gave away a soft penalty.

"But it was a good performance and a bitter pill to swallow.

"At the moment, there are positives to take from performances as well as the negatives. We are not a million miles away. We are not getting thumped every week.

"It's the positives we need to draw on.

"But we do need to start picking up some results again quickly because you start looking over your shoulder at the bottom.

"We don't went to find ourselves getting sucked into that drop zone."

Adams added: "From my point of view, it's a difficult spell, one of the toughest I have had as a manager.

"But, as we have said, we are in a period of transition.

"We are working hard both on and off the pitch but we really do need to address the current run and take some momentum into the close season so we can ready ourselves for next year."

Adams hopes to have a full strength squad at his disposal this weekend with Chris Laite expected to shake off a knock.
