AFC Chris Anderson was left dejected after his side’s back-to-back defeats against Charnock Richard and Squires Gate.

The AFC LIverpool boss was left to rue missed opportunities as promotion-chasing Charnock Richard made their opportunities count.

Whilst during the midweek defeat to Squires Gate, it was a similar story as handful of chances were squandered as the Blackpool-side left Merseyside with three points.

This weekend Winsford visit as they look to return to return to winning ways but the Reds boss says the restoration of confidence is needed.

Anderson told Off The Park: “After playing really well first half against Charnock, we knew what type of football they play and how solid they are.

“But we created a lot of chances and go in at half time 2-0 down, so frustrating we’ve played so well and not scored. I expected to come out fighting but that wasn’t the case unfortunately on Saturday. 

“Against Squires Gate, they’re in and around us, I don’t think we played anywhere near our capabilities in the first half. We had a go second half but still lost 1-0, we’ve created seven good chances throughout the 90 minutes but we didn’t convert any. 

“I didn’t think we got into really good areas in the final third, we didn’t create enough chances [on Saturday]. On Tuesday nights performance, we created the chances we just wasn’t clinical in front of goal. 

“[We need to] Try and get confidence back in the players, try get back to what we’re good at. Try get players to be good in the positions that they play, hopefully give them the freedom to release the shackles and get at them. 

“We’ve got Isle of Man, who are top of their league, so it’s not going to be easy in the Macron Cup. That may give us something to play for away from the league, hopefully we can start preparing for that with a win on Saturday.”
