Walker admitted morale in the squad was pretty low and als also revealed caretaker boss Guy Whittingham gave the squad a stern talking to after an indifferent first half.

"I don't think it is a case of attitude. We do give it are all. It's just we weren't playing the right way," he added.

"It seems to be the same story every game, what do we do now?

"Now we have to think about the next game and keep strong at the back."
