Deeping Rangers are looking to bounce back from a hat-trick of defeats.

They head to Oadby Town on Saturday following losses to Holbeach United, Norwich United and Cogenhoe United.

Rangers took the lead last weekend at home to Cogenhoe but conceded three goals in a six-minute spell.

Manager Tuncay Korkmaz said: “We had a 70-minute spell where we didn’t look like losing and we had a very decent chance to score a 
second goal.

“That was the changing point in the game because they scored a scrappy goal, then a second with an unlucky deflection.

“It was in our own hands to win the game or claim at least a point out of it.

“But we weren’t clinical enough to take the chance to finish them off and we weren’t stubborn enough to keep them out.

“None of the lads who started played badly but we have to be a bit more clinical offensively and defensively.

“We need to learn that it’s not about doing well for 70 minutes and then switch off for five bad minutes.

“Every game is a test and we’ve lost three games back-to-back, so it’s a bit like building blocks at the moment.

“Losing three games in a row is not the best place to be.”

Meanwhile, Deeping’s Dave Holmes was awarded third place for Step 5 & 6 clubs at the FA Groundsman of the Year Awards.

Chairman Kevin Davenport said: “We’ve always been proud of our playing surfaces and most visiting teams make a point of congratulating us 
for their excellent condition, regardless of the time of year or the weather conditions.”

David Papworth has been elected president to succeed the late Norman Fowler.
