David Holdsworth: Injuries have hit hard, but we should still be winning
I am absolutely bewildered at how we failed to come away from Telford with a victory given how many chances we created.
Scoring the killer second goal is something we need to work on because in the last three games we have created gilt-edged chances at critical points in games.
Nobody can disagree with the fact that my players are running through brick walls for this club.
You have to bear in mind we have injuries piling up which means we are putting square pegs in round holes.

Some players who are in the team even have injuries themselves, but they are putting their bodies on the line.
I cannot ask anymore of them in terms of their integrity, their honesty and ultimately their desire.
In some instances we have been down to 14 fit bodies and even despite the problems, we should have beaten Ebbsfleet and Alfreton too.
I know it's a familiar saying, but goals do change games.
However, in the Alfreton game, I cannot go without mentioning a disgraceful refereeing decision.
Jake Sheridan was clearly brought down from behind, but it was not given and they eventually go and score from the breakaway.
I think the referee's performance needs to be addressed because a player has taken two dives, but is not even given a booking.
Yet if he blows for a foul against my goalkeeper then he would have been sent off.
They were telling moments and in my opinion, he did not keep control of the game.
Alfreton were lucky to have 11 men on the pitch and the game spiralled out of control at one stage.
Decisions were made that were very frustrating and I believe were well below the standard we have had so far.
It was just one of many things that went wrong on the night.
We lost Alan Power to an ankle injury and he looks like he is going to be out for some time.
He is still on crutches having been carried off on a stretcher and we also lost Andrew Boyce to a knee injury.
Thankfully he was fit enough to play on Saturday because we are already without Tom Miller.
To have eight or nine players out in total would affect any team in the land.
If you took the best players out of Manchester City's first 11, they would be an average Premier League team.
It is very difficult and since the Kidderminster game, we've really not been able to field a squad, let alone a team.
Picking a bench will be hard for the next few games, that is for sure.
When you are striving for consistency then it is a major blow. But if you look at someone like Dan Gray, he has played in three positions already and we've only had eight games.
All I ask for is for understanding and to make judgement once we have all of our best players back and in the first team.
