STRATFORD Town manager Carl Adams is determined to address defensive problems after watching his side concede 10 goals in the last two games.
Town went down 4-3 after a last-minute goal in their Calor Southern League game at Tiverton Town on Saturday, before they crashed out of the Red Insure Cup in a 6-4 defeat at home to Redditch United on Monday evening.
Their 10 games in the league so far have yielded 45 goals with Adams’ men scoring 21 of them.
Scoring goals has not been an issue for the Town boss but an inability to prevent them going in at the other end is now an area for concern.
“We’ve got problems at the back, there’s no two ways about it,” Adams told the Herald. “It’s been a terrible week as far as I am concerned. Conceding 10 goals is just not good enough.
“When we have the ball we are as good as anyone in the league but when we don’t have it we are as bad as anyone. We know what the problems are and we have to address them.
“I’m not laying the blame purely on the defence. Defending is also about the midfielders and the strikers doing their bit as well to help out. Everyone has to be involved."
