Scott Porter says Hythe Town must get back to basics to put their stuttering start to the season behind them.
Town don’t have a game this weekend so they have time to put things right before taking on Ware in the FA Trophy preliminary round at Reachfields on September 15.
Boss Porter (pictured) said: “The players are aware we’re under-achieving but we know what we need to do and we’re working hard to rediscover our form.
“We need to get back to basics and do what we do best, which is being hard to beat.
“We had a good pre-season and won the first game at Walton Casuals but our confidence has gone since losing to Herne Bay.
“That happens in football and it’s up to me and my staff to pick the players up.”
Defensive errors and missed chances have hit Hythe’s Ryman League, Division 1 South campaign, but Porter was keen to stress there is a long way to go.
He added: “It’s a tough league and everyone is beating each other. There’s no pressure on any of the sides at the moment because it’s still so early in the season.
“We’ve only lost two games and there’s a lot of football still to be played. The break on Saturday will give us the chance to regroup and I’m sure our form will turn.
