FOOTBALL: 'We are making it harder for ourselves'
Holbeach United boss Seb Hayes is demanding more during a tough start to the season.
The Tigers have lost four times in six games - picking up six points for a mid-table spot.
They are one place and one point behind Cogenhoe United who come to Carter's Park on Saturday.
The Northamptonshire side lost 1-0 at home to Pinchbeck United in between two away defeats when they conceded a total of 12 goals!
Hayes said: "You can never write any teams off at this stage because clubs have started like this in previous seasons and won trophies.
"However, we are massively under pressure now.
"We are not sticking to what we are good at. We have dropped too deep defensively and invited pressure.
"We must press higher and show the work ethic and desire to stay in games.
"We've had the toughest set of fixtures at the start of the season but we are making it harder for ourselves.
"We need a 90-minute performance rather than 60 or 70. We've given ourselves too much to do.
"We are not good enough to kill off games unless we perform for that extra 20 minutes.
"Last season, we usually delivered in the big games against top teams because we worked hard.
"We want to push for honours but those little spells are costing us in games against quality opposition at the moment."
