EXPERIENCED coach Terry Yorath today highlighted the teamwork which can make Town play-off challengers once again.
Peter Jackson's righthand man has watched Town slip from top-six contention in Coca-Cola League I and notch just one win in nine matches in all competitions.
It's a record he's keen to start addressing with victory against Port Vale at the Galpharm on Boxing Day (3.00), after the squad have rested on Christmas Day.
"People are offering all sorts of theories about how we are doing but, quite simply, we have to attack more as a team and defend more as a team - that's what good teams do," said Yorath today.
"Last season, we had lots of people contributing goals from midfield and defence in addition to the strikers and, at the back, we had lots of people getting bodies in the way of shots and headers.
"This season, we don't seem to have so many bodies in the way and we aren't getting the necessary goals to take the weight off Pawel Abbott's shoulders.
"We aren't far off the mark and we've got everything to play for, though, so it's up to all of us, coaches included, to work on the things we've identified as being wrong and help the lads to get it right."
Yorath believes Town are capable of mounting a strong winning run.
"I remember as a player, you would sometimes go off form for no particular reason. It wasn't a lack of technique, fitness or willingness, it just happened," he said.
"And it didn't take much to put it right, just a good pass or a good strike. So far we haven't produced the winning consistency we need, but it will come.
"As a club, and including the fans as well, we could do with the boost of winning two on the trot. It hasn't happend often enough."
