Scott Porter labelled Hythe Town’s Ryman League Division 1 South 2-0 home defeat against Ramsgate as his team’s worst performance of the season.
A victory would have put them in pole position and Porter admits home form is beginning to cause concern, after taking only one point out of nine at Reachfields.
Porter said: "There was nothing there, we played as individuals not as a team, and I stood there embarrassed at times to say they were my players, and that’s being quite kind. We had no quality, no work-rate and no effort.
"We would have gone top had we won, and if we can’t get up for that, then something’s not quite right. All 14 players had a bad game, because the three substitutes didn’t do anything either."
He added: "We looked so good at Merstham last Saturday, but the defeat on Tuesday night took all the edge of it, and I honestly can’t get my head around the reasons why."
Porter, who starts a four-match touchline ban at the weekend, is demanding an immediate improvement in Saturday’s performance at Eastbourne Town.
The Sussex side are in the lower reaches of the table and Porter said: "We are better on the road, and that’s why where we are in the table. I have had a good chat with the boys and will be looking for a response."
Hythe travel to Ryman League Division 1 North side Thamesmead next Tuesday in their re-arranged Kent Senior Cup tie, postponed last week.
