UNHAPPY Alvechurch boss Ian Long has threatened to ring the changes following two consecutive 3-0 defeats.

Having bowed out of the FA Trophy to Stratford Town in midweek, the Church followed up with a 3-0 home defeat to Kings Lynn.

On both occasions, the Church were 3-0 down by the break and Long confirmed: "On both occasions, the game was over by half time.

"Against Stratford, we were totally outplayed and we got what we deserved.

"But against Kings Lynn, it was individual errors that cost us, as we got punished for them.

"It's not in my make-up to accept defeat and I won't accept it now.

"We've had a great start to the season but now we've had a bit of a slump and I'll be looking for a reaction.

"We're still seventh in the table and had a bit of cushion over the sides behind us - but that cushion has now gone!

Long confirmed he'd served two seven day notices of approach, but suggested he was more likely to changes from within ahead of this Saturday's trip to one of his former clubs Rushall Olympic with Ryan Winwood, Zak Foster, Tom Turton, Kieron Cook and Andre Landell all coming back into the reckoning.

Long stressed: "We need to get something on the board from Rushall.

"There was an imporvement against Kings Lynn from the defeat at Stratford, where we were non existent.

"Kings Lynn are a good side, they were runners up last season and I expect them to be up there again at the end of the season.

"But in truth, we made it easy for them. We have to stick together and start cutting out the errors".
