Vaughan - 'It's The Players Fault'!
David Vaughan admits the team are to blame for their recent run of poor form.
David Vaughan: "It is our fault we're down there, nobody else's, and it's up to us to get ourselves out of it.
"When we got in at half-time on Sunday, we all thought we'd go on and get three points but it wasn't to be.
"We put in a massive effort but ran out of ideas by the end. We needed more imagination, something we've been missing.
"We badly let ourselves down with our passing. We rushed it and the quality just wasn't there.
"That is our own fault and something we need to work on. We're on a bad run. It's difficult to keep confidence high.
"It's hard to accept. When you look at the squad, we should not be in this position.
"We really need the points and have some tough fixtures but we've actually done better against the top teams, so I'm still hopeful we'll get them."
