Michael Jolley described his side’s performance as “unacceptable” as Barrow fell to a fourth successive defeat in the derby against Morecambe on Saturday.
The Bluebirds were off-colour in the first half and fell behind to Aaron Wildig’s close-range header but Scott Quigley fired in a neat equaliser on 65 minutes.
However, just a minute later Kelvin Mellor was given too much time on the right edge of the area to drill home what proved to be the winning goal for The Shrimps.
“We paid the price for the really poor start we made in the first half,” Jolley told iFollow.
“It was completely unacceptable in the first half and we were way below the level we expect from ourselves.
“We’ve come in and made a lot of changes in January to try and put a team together but we need to come together quickly because we didn’t perform in that first half.
“The second half was somewhat better. We got back in the game but then immediately made an error and they got the winning goal so it’s no acceptable today.
“Regardless of how good our football is, we need to look and play like a team so we will speak very openly on Monday. I will put my views across and the players will have an opportunity to put their views forward too.
“Each of us, starting with myself, have to take individual responsibility to try and improve our fortunes.”
