WITHAM Town manager Adam Flint has vowed to make changes as he looks for "hungry" players after seeing his team's winless run stretched to six games.

A 2-0 defeat by Bowers and Pitsea on Tuesday, which followed last weekend's 1-1 draw at Romford, left Witham 20th in the Bostik League division north table.

It has been a difficult start to the campaign for Flint's team and they have won just twice from their ten league outings so far.

The Witham boss admits that form like that is starting to be a concern and, with no game this weekend, he said changes would be coming as they prepared for their next game against Bury Town at the Village Glass Stadium on Tuesday.

He said: "It just wasn't good enough against Bowers and I now have to make decisions on a few players.

"We didn't compete enough all over.

"We started to get a foot in the game at the start of the second half but you can't do things like we did, like not picking players up on the edge of the area.

"We were giving instructions out there on things like corners but players were thinking they shouldn't have to do it and they were leaving stuff for others to do.

"You can't do that at any level and I need to give a few of them a kick up the backside.

"Maybe I will have to go with people who I know are going to work hard for me.

"I'm not saying they didn't work hard but some of the stuff was half-hearted.

"We were giving instructions and there were younger boys on the bench who I think would have done it.

"We have some seven-dayers in for some players as we knew we had the week break coming up.

"We have been thinking of it anyway, but that performance hit the nail on the head.

"Bowers were hungrier than us.

"I don't think they were better than us as players, but they were hungrier and I'd rather have a hungry team than people who are just picking a bit of money up and doing what they want to do.

"Sometimes it can just go a bit stale with some players so I'm looking at one or two who I think may need to change.

"It's always easy to look at things like that when you're struggling, but I do have decisions to make on one or two players.

"Do they really want to be here?

"I don't know, but there are good young players at the club who may not have got their chance yet."

Witham now have a weekend off to ponder their position, but with home games against sixth-placed Bury Town and leaders Canvey Island coming up, Flint knows an upturn in form is needed soon.

"I think six games was the longest that we went without a win last year so it is a bit of a concern now," he added.

"We do look more solid than we did last year, but we're not causing teams problems up front.

"We were more gung-ho last year and people may say it's because Nathan (Koranteng) has gone, but I don't think that's right.

"We just need to start doing the basics right again.

"We now have Bury on Tuesday and then Canvey (Island) after that and we can't afford for that run to stretch to seven or eight games.

"It's a hard league and wins are so precious, especially for teams like us on lower budgets."
