‘That’s the problem’ – Gary Moore pinpoints Lower Breck issue ahead of Kendal Town trip

Lower Breck concede vs Longridge Town

Lower Breck manager Gary Moore has rued mistakes in their recent outings after a promising start to the calendar year.

Following a win over Squires Gate, Breck have managed to pick up a point from their last four North West Counties Premier Division matches.

They managed a draw against Barnoldswick Town as they had to come from behind at the Silentnight Stadium before succumbing to Padiham.

They hosted Longridge Town last weekend and were left empty-handed despite taking the lead twice through Jawad Jebrin and Connor Rankin.

“I thought we started okay, a couple of draws and a win we thought we were on a solid footing, we were playing good enough to get something out of games but we’ve had things creeping into games,” Moore said speaking to Off The Park.

“We’re conceding late in matches, not seeing games out that you should be in a position to win, it hasn’t been great. Other than this week, we have been happy, not happy with how results have gone but performances and there was some things to tweak, this week we’ve gone in the opposite direction.

“With the late goals we can certainly look back at a few different things. Certainly one of the games you watch it back, look at how other teams work and the Congleton goal in that game that was well worked but at the same time one of our players has lost a man.

“When we’re reviewing the footage, people are losing men, making mistakes, you don’t like to blame individuals but individual mistakes are costing us at the moment but also it’s organisation.

“It’s not ideal when you’re changing the back four or tweaks and changes but we’ve got to get back to that team that kept those clean sheets in that run of games, since the AFC away game in the cup, it’s fair to say we’ve leaked too many goals.

“It’s got to a point where it’s too many late goals. When we’ve watched them back, it’s not good from our point of view. I’ve got to give the lads credit, up until this week, Padiham and Longridge we were good in patches and deserved more, we had big chances.

“You’ve got to take them chances, easier said than done, you win football matches, that’s how close we’ve been to building on the run. Mistakes are getting punished, we’ve got to work very hard for our goals, teams don’t have to work hard for their goals against us.

“Every game is at the moment, there’s no pressure on the lads,” he added talking about each game being an opportunity being a chance to right the wrongs of the previous outing. “First half on Saturday we played some lovely football, went in 2-1 up, it’s not doom and gloom like I felt last Saturday, I’ve been disappointed this week and I’ve gone on record, spoke to the lads about it, pretty disappointed after Saturday because information hasn’t been followed through but every game is one of those opportunities to show what they’ve got.

“We’ve got a good dressing room, we need additions because we’re a little bit short but every game is one of them, you’ve got to go there and perform and if we put in a solid 90 minutes, we’ve proved it, we’d beat anyone in the division. But we know we can do it but since the turn of the year, we haven’t been putting in big 90-minute performances, that’s the problem.”
