Frank Lampard admits Chelsea have not worked hard enough to arrest their alarming slide down the Barclays Premier League.England midfielder Lampard believes a lack of confidence and quality have also played their part in the club's worst run of league results for almost 15 years."There was a time like this near the end of the Luiz Felipe Scolari reign when we were struggling to get wins," said Lampard whose two goals in Sunday's 7-0 FA Cup thrashing of Ipswich went some way to lifting the gloom at Stamford Bridge."Everyone has spells like that to an extent but this one has been a little more prolonged over a period of time."That's the upsetting thing. It is certainly time for us to change it now. Not winning games is the biggest thing that has affected us."There are quite a few reasons for that, a lack of confidence being one of them, but there has also been a lack of quality and workrate. We need to step it up across the board to get back to where we want to be."
