Banbury United boss Mike Ford says his players have to get back to basics.

Following a great start to the Evo-Stik Southern League campaign, the Puritans have lost back-to-back games and conceded seven goals in the process.

Ford said: “I don’t believe I’ve got a group of players who are arrogant or complacent, who think they just have to turn up to win games. We have a philosophy of trying to play the right way and be hard working.”

Ford said he took full responsibility for the two defeats, adding: “We were too loose on Saturday against Frome and I wanted to make sure we were more difficult to beat against Redditch so I went with that team selection.

“But I got it wrong against Frome and got it wrong on Tuesday, so I’ll just have to make sure I get it right on Saturday!”
