ANDY HOLDSWORTH admitted today it's time for Town to stop talking about a good run and actually launch one to improve on 14th place in the table.
The 20-year-old full-back is having treatment for a groin injury which forced him off after 55 minutes of Saturday's 4-2 defeat by Barnsley at Oakwell.
Holdsworth is hopeful he'll be fit for the home clash with Bournemouth, but he's still sore about the way Barnsley completed a League double over Town.
"We went into the game with high hopes but what happened in the first half was horrible and we need to work on that," said the talented full-back.
"The gaffer shouldn't really need to have harsh words to get us going, we should be going from the off, but we weren't on Saturday and we got punished badly for it.
"In the second half, we could easily have taken all the points, but that's no consolation when we've lost.
"What we need to do now is all stick together and look for that winning run we've been hoping for all season.
"We've been talking about it for a long time and, if we don't get it together soon we could be fighting relegation. On the other hand, if we do come up with a solid run then we'll be challenging for the play-offs again. That's what we'll be aiming for."
Holdsworth received treatment from physio Lee Martin at the Galpharm Stadium yesterday and was again under observation today.
