Lowestoft Town joint boss Ady Gallagher insists the Blues have enough firepower in their squad to get their promotion hopes back on track.
The 1-1 draw against Kingstonian on Tuesday night made it six games without a win for the Trawlerboys but it was the amount of chances that went begging which was the biggest worry.
However, Gallagher believes it is only a matter of time before his strikers hit form again and hopes a change of luck will see his side get back in the race for automatic promotion.
“It’s hugely frustrating because we’ve probably created enough chances to win two games really,” said Gallagher, whose side are now 15 points off leaders Sutton United with three games in hand. “It’s just not going in for us. We’ve had a lot of criticism lately that we haven’t got enough goalscorers but I totally disagree with that. We have got enough goalscorers in our side.
“As a creative unit we created lots of chances. In the first 20 minutes of the game we were devastating. If we keep creating that many chances then I’m certain that our luck is going to change.” Lowestoft should have been out of sight within the first 20 minutes on Tuesday night and Gallagher was disappointed that his side could not build on Joe Francis’ opener.
“That first 20 minutes we were doing so many good things - we had some devastating periods of play but the lads have got to realise what they were doing well and keep at it.
“We’ve got to keep the belief in our play and hopefully it will change for us.”
Gallagher is certain Lowestoft are still in the race for promotion and urged fans not to worry about the table as it stands. Gallagher believes it will look a whole lot different at the end of the season.
“The reality is that what the table looks like in February is irrelevant,” he said. “It’s what it looks like at the end of the season – that’s what really matters.
“We know that we’ve been in a strong position but we’ve had our blip. Many teams are still to go on theirs.
“The players need to keep doing the things that are good in their game and we’ll be fine.”
