Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law says his side's inability to take their chances is costing them following their latest Blue Square Bet Premier defeat.
The Reds lost 2-0 at Gateshead on Saturday - their fourth loss in seven.
Law told BBC Radio Derby: "They [opposition] are the ones putting the ball in the net.
"They were a threat but when we get the ball in the final third we are not as direct. The two ends of the pitch are the difference at this level."
