It’s been a really disappointing few days.

We’d won six on the trot and then just didn’t turn up against Bamber Bridge on Saturday.

It was one of our worst performances of the season and at a crucial time.

We seemed to lack a bit of confidence for whatever reason and it was just a really ordinary performance.

On Tuesday night I thought we started quite well at Northwich and should have got something and would have done but for a few lapses in the second half.

We had a few chances early on and then went 1-0 down and when we pulled it back to 1-1 we thought we would go on to win from there.

But individual errors in the second half cost us. We made four or five changes with both Ryan Elderton and Glenn Steel working but that’s not an excuse.

Jordan Connerton was also missing and his move to Australia has been the biggest surprise of the last week.

Nobody knew anything about it until he told the gaffer (Darren Peacock) after the game on Saturday.

He’ll be a big miss especially with the timing, but we’ll have to carry on with what we’ve got.

This week’s results mean the game against Farsley on Saturday is another massive one.

It’s as tight as ever at the top and we can’t afford to let another team go above us. The play-offs are anyone’s for the taking.
