Drogheda United assistant manager John Gill bemoaned his side’s luck as they lost 2-0 at home to Finn Harps in a crucial game at the bottom of the table.
Goals in either half from Eddie Dsane and Danny Morrissey sealed victory for Harps as they opened up a four-point gap on Drogheda leaving Gill searching for positives.
“We were a lot better than last week,” Gill admitted post-match.
"The result is obviously disappointing, we gave away two soft goals which is what happens when you’re down at the bottom.
"I thought we were the better team in the first-half and should’ve gone in level after hitting the post but things really aren’t going for us."
A sloppy start to the game saw the Drogs concede through Dsane’s curling free-kick on four minutes leaving the Boynesiders with a mountain to climb.
“We’re just killing ourselves at the moment.
"It was a poor first touch and then trying to make up for it, we give away the free-kick.
"It was a great bit of quality but you can’t give the opposition chances like that. Every mistake we make is being punished at the moment."
Drogheda have now gone 11 league games without a win and with only one goal in their last night nine outings, Gill believes his side needs some new signings to turn fortunes around.
“All we need is one win to bring us back into it, that’s the kind of league that it is.
"We need to work harder and bring in some new bodies to give us a fresh impetus ahead of the next few weeks.
“We’re not good enough to look three or four games ahead, let alone one.
"We have to start breaking the game down into 15-20 minute intervals to build ourselves back up.
"There are some very talented young players at the club, they just need to find the belief to start expressing themselves again."
