Adams said: "We started the game well, we scored and then we could have scored a couple more. But then we sat off them and I'm not happy.
"There were players out there who didn't want the ball. They were hiding and I won't have it.
"My players seem to be different animals away from home when I don't see that in their play. But I need players who are brave and prepared to accept the ball in difficult situations at all times.
"The challenge was to beat a decent Torquay team and push into the top half of the table. I'm disappointed we haven't achieved that and the players will know how I feel for the rest of the week."
