AFC Telford United defender Will Salmon insists the players are working hard to eradicate their defensive errors.
Telford are 18th in the Blue Square Bet Premier after their 2-0 defeat by league leaders Wrexham on 26 December.
"We're down towards the bottom of the table for a reason," Salmon told BBC Radio Shropshire.
"I think we've been switching off and at this level, they're going to capitalise on your mistakes."
The Bucks have kept just five clean sheets all season.
Salmon said the players know the areas they need to improve: "We need to be better and start picking up points."
Telford play Wrexham again on New Year's Day at the Racecourse Ground.
