TOMMY WRIGHT has admitted not all of his players attend each training session and says that is one of the reasons his team is performing badly.

Today’s 3-1 loss at Chester was Quakers’ eighth defeat of the season in all competitions, and saw them drop to 17th in the table.

Attention turns to next week’s home match against bottom-of-the-table Nuneaton, the club Wright quit to become Quakers’ boss a year ago.

Wright, speaking to the club’s website, said after today’ game: “We’ve got two sessions on the training pitch, and I’ve just said to the lads are they doing things right Monday to Friday.

“The excuses for not being able to attend training have got to stop. I think I’ve heard every excuse in the book to not attend training.

“That’s probably why we’re where we’re at, because we don’t work enough together as a group. Ultimately that’s my responsibility.

“There’ll be no exceptions. We’ll be ready to work and ready to play Nuneaton next Saturday.”
