HEREFORD manager Josh Gowling was left angry at his side’s performance as they fell to back-to-back league defeats.

A big crowd of 2,728 fans were left disappointed as the Bulls were beaten 3-1 at Edgar Street on Monday just two days after a defeat at Banbury United by the same score-line.

Aaron Amadi-Holloway had put Hereford ahead against City but individual errors proved costly as Tre Mitford scored a brace and Matt Mclure the other to disappoint the home fans.

“They (the fans) will be angry, we’ve conceded three goals at home, I am angry,” said Gowling.

“Our problem at the moment is possession we give the ball away in such bad areas that cost us the game. It cost us the game on Saturday (at Banbury) and it’s cost us again today. The six goals we’ve conceded in the last two games have all been down to individual errors.

“Out of possession when we haven’t got the ball we’re fine but as soon as we start looking to play our decision making on the ball and the areas we give the ball away are really costing us at the moment.

“We will change it, we’ll work, we’ve got a system that we work on. We will look at personnel, we’ve got a bigger squad now and we will work on it. Those individual errors have got to stop and got to stop fast.

“We’ve got to come back stronger, it’s not often we go back-to-back (defeats) and we have done that and conceded six goals.

“It’s a new squad, there are going to be dips. I’m not happy at all, I know where I want to be and those performances in the last two games are not where I want to be.

“I understand why the fans are frustrated but stick with us. We’ve been here before, last season we had 10 games without a win and we turned it around.

“Come on the ride with us. We’re a better side than we were last year, I understand the frustration, but stick with us and we’ll get it right.”

Gowling reflected on the defeat against Gloucester and said his side had ‘gone off script’ after dominating the early stages and going ahead.

“We’ve spoken about it at half-time where our strengths are and where we need to put the ball,” added Gowling.

“We’ve waited, waited, waited and it’s turned over and they’ve scored from it. We’ve got to be better in possession of the football without a doubt.

“In the first half with (Thierry) Latty-Fairweather and worked off Aaron (Amadi-Holloway) really well and then all of a sudden because that was working they thought we’d do something else now.

“We started doing other things and that’s when the ball started turning over and we had problems. For us at the moment we’re going off script. We started the game well, went 1-0 up, made a mistake and had a bit of a wobble.

“We’ve got to be strong as a group, have strong characters and get around each other more and just be a bit more ruthless with each other.

“If you look at the end Tyrone (Barnett) and Aaron (Amadi-Holloway) have nodded a couple down and you’re looking for people to get onto the end of things,

“We didn’t get on the end of things and there were too many ball that flashed across the six-yard box, when you just need someone to tap one in there and we haven’t done that.”
