Oxford City lost for the third game in a row after being defeated 2-1 by Bath City.

Mark Jones says his side need to put in a consistently good performance rather than playing well for certain parts of games.

Speaking to the club’s website after the defeat he said.

“It feels like groundhog day, first half we played well, got a goal and put in a great performance to start with, what we can’t seem to do is put in a 90 minute performance, it is no consolation for me that we have put that performance in throughout.

“All we can do is keep going, at the end of the day, people only look at the result, people don’t praise you for a great training session or a great 30 minutes, we got beat and we have to accept that.”

He added: “The first goal for them comes from our throw-in, we then miss kick and it goes for a corner, then instead of staying in the game, we concede within 90 seconds

This defeat saw the side stay in 19th place, with Jones believing that small changes will see them leap up the league.

“I put that group of players together, I believe in them as being good players but at the moment, at the key moments we seem to be found wanting a bit too often.
