Dog Inn manager Simon Kerins felt his side were the orchestrators of their defeat to Sabden.
After Connor Haworth’s first half strike was ruled out for offside, the hosts went on to win 3-0.
“Sabden haven’t won this game; we have beaten ourselves,” he said. “Putting the disallowed goal - an outrage - to one side, football is about both what we do with the ball and what we do without it.
“We let ourselves down badly. Three defeats from five games is not the start we envisaged, but only we can put things right and get back to winning ways.”
