SHOT-shy Alsager drew a blank again as they lost their local derby, on Monday.
The misfiring Bullets are struggling to find the net. A 2-0 defeat to Brigg Town on Friday was followed by Monday's 3-0 reverse at Wood Park.
Assistant manager Richard Mitchell insists his side are playing well.
He said: 'We dominated the game for 75 minutes on Monday, but ended up losing 3-0. It is hard to explain. We played some excellent stuff, but were lacking the killer touch.
'There is no point in playing a lot of attractive football if you don't put the ball in the net.
'I could not fault the effort and commitment of the players at Brigg. We played well but lacked quality in the last third and did not create anything in the way of clear cut chances.
'It looked like 0-0 after 75 minute against Kidsgrove, but the referee gave a poor decision, they lumped a free-kick in the box and Micky Lennon swept it in.
'That's the difference and why he gets 30-plus goals every season. Then we were chasing the game and got caught at the back.'
Mitchell praised on-loan Crewe Alex kids Amari Morgan-Smith and Gareth Evans: 'They looked excellent at times. Amari scared them to death in the first half.'
