After back-to-back defeats, Rosslyn Park head coach James Buckland admitted his charges are not firing on all cylinders.

Park followed up a 18-31 defeat to Blackheath two weekends ago with a 20-36 defeat at Fylde on Saturday, leaving them seventh in the National League One table.

Adam Bellamy, Sam Shires and Ed Milne got over the whitewash for Park, with Brett Herron kicking the extras.

Park led 20-15 going in the half-time break despite being dominated by their Lancastrian hosts.

However, that domination would bear fruit for Fylde in the second half when they ran in three converted and unanswered tries.

Buckland said: “We have played two good teams, who have raised their games against us.

“But our performances have not been good, we are struggling to fire our shots and our set pieces are not functioning as well as they should be.

“Perhaps we are also lacking energy in defence and attack.”

He added: “We know there are areas that need improving and we’re under no illusions of the hard work we have to put in.”

Life will get no easier for Park this weekend when they host second-placed Ampthill at the Rock.

They then face a trip to Coventry, who turned them over in the final game of last season.

“This league is incredibly tough because the games just keep coming, and they are tough games,” said Buckland, pictured right.

“That can help sometimes because the lads can get straight back on the horse and put things right.

“We have to concentrate on putting in a performance and being at our best for these two really tough games.”
