Carlisle United manager Greg Abbott has said players owe it to themselves to improve their form after
The loss was United's eighth in 11 games and the fourth four-goal deficit of the campaign so far.
"I have no choice, these are the players I have got," Abbott told BBC Radio Cumbria.
"They have to react, otherwise they are going to find themselves in a little bit of trouble as well."
Abbott, as manager, has been the subject of some supporters' frustration, but the Cumbrians boss is convinced a team effort is required to address the slide to 18th in the League One table.
"As a group we have to do it together - it is not any one man, it is not any one individual, not me, not one player, not one member of staff," Abbott said.
"It has to be a collective effort and we have to be collectively a lot better than we were today."
Having taken over from John Ward in November 2008, Abbott guided Carlisle to consecutive Johnstone's Paint Trophy finals, with victory against Brentford in 2011 a highlight.
