Dejected boss Rob Edwards insists a lack of leaders has nothing to do with AFC Telford United’s struggles.

The Bucks are second from bottom in National League North and reeling after a 3-0 home defeat to Curzon Ashton. A youthful Telford side were picked apart by the Nash – who had gone seven matches without winning.

On the loss, Edwards said: “I don’t think it’s anything to do with leaders. The goals were just poor goals to give away.

“You look at the first half, we dominated every single area. Alright, we conceded a goal – but we had a couple of one-on-ones, numerous chances.

“No one would have questioned any leaders then. But their second goal changed the game’s complexion and it did look like we lost belief.

“People were having a few doubts. It’s not a question of leaders, it’s a question of having quality – at the right times.

“We lacked quality and decision-making at key times.”

Ben McKenna and Niall Cummins netted either side of a stunning strike from Jake Dunwoody for the visitors, in front of 747 fans – the joint-lowest attendance for a home league game this term. Amari Morgan-Smith missed a penalty for the Bucks late on.
