Soham Town Rangers manager Steve Fallon says his side needs to be more clinical in front of goal after his wasteful side went down to two defeats in three days.
On Saturday, The Greens took the lead at Barkingside through Dan Brown but they spurned good chances to extend their lead and were punished by two second half goals in a 2-1 loss.
It was a similar story against Redbridge last night - Soham had a host of chances but could not find the net. The hosts made the most of theirs and ran out 2-0 winners.
Fallon said: “They are both disappointing results. Against Barkingside we played well in the first half in difficult conditions and should have been more than one goal up.
“We couldn’t get that second goal and after they got their goals we couldn’t get back into it.
“Against Redbridge, we created lots of chances but couldn’t finish them. It’s about putting the ball in the back of the net. Credit to Redbridge, they could.
“We can’t keep clean sheets at the moment so if we stop scoring we are in trouble.”

Fallon says he is looking to bring in a striker to strengthen his frontline.
He said: “Luke Stanley is up there on his own at the moment and he needs help so we are looking to bring in another striker.”
Soham’s busy fixture schedule shows no sign of relenting - they host Maldon & Tiptree on Saturday then travel to Waltham Abbey on Tuesday. The Greens won both of the corresponding games earlier this season.
Fallon said: “In this league we can beat anybody or lose to anybody. We go on a run of three wins then lose a couple. That’s not good enough. We need to become more consistent.”
