Paul Foot: There will be no panic after dropped points

I can assure you that neither me nor Bryan Hughes will be pressing any panic buttons after Tuesday night’s defeat at Ossett Town.

It is true that we have dropped points in our last two league games, both of which we should have won.

Still if you look at our start to the season, we couldn’t have asked for too much more from the lads.

We obviously want to go out there and beat teams like Ossett and Prescot, but it doesn’t always work out like that.

Chelsea should have beaten Crystal Palace in the Premier League a week or so again, yet they didn’t.

We have a break now before the game against Warrington, which I think will do us some good.

It is important for us as a group that we pick up some points against Warrington, but even if we lose, it won’t be the end of the season, we just have to carry on doing the right things.

Despite the fact that we have lost just the one game in our opening six league fixtures, you hear a few people saying that it is the same old Boro and having a go at us.

These people have to know that the defeats hurt us too.

The lads were gutted after Tuesday night.

We have set a high standard when it comes to the results though, despite the fact that we haven’t really played well.

I don’t think we have really clicked as a side yet, when that happens it will get very interesting.

To help the lads bond they are all going out on Saturday as a group and I think that will do them a world of good.

They can go out, enjoy themselves and have a break, then come back as one for the game against Warrington.

We’ll be back in training next week in preparation, and in those sessions we’ll see the likes of Joe Lamplough, Matty Bloor and Ryan Blott all fit and ready to go.

All the lads are working hard to get this club to where we want to be.

I can tell you as a management team there are no worries at all because we believe that this Boro team is the real deal.
