NEIL Young says he and his players must take collective responsibility for Chester FC’s disappointing 3-1 defeat at Curzon Ashton.
While the Blues boss regrets not going with the gut instinct telling him to make changes to a winning side, he feels that should not excuse what was an error-strewn performance from his table-topping team.
Young said: “I worry myself silly when things go wrong but at the end of the day people have got to stand up and be counted.
“The first goal we’ve cleared our lines and then there’s a lad getting a free header six yards from goal; second goal we haven’t cleared our lines and the lad has finished it off and the third goal is a back pass which killed any chance we had of getting back into the game.
“To be fair, Curzon were the better team, but we were woeful and it was probably our worst performance of the season as a team.
“I always question myself and I’ll look at myself and think whether picking the same team was the right decision. But I still think there was enough out there to do better.
“Ultimately Curzon wanted it more and I’d struggle to name anybody who did well for us.”
