Sonny Bradley has scored three goals in 18 games for Plymouth - his best ever goalscoring record at a club

Plymouth Argyle centre-back Sonny Bradley says the club's defensive players feel they are to blame for the end of their unbeaten run.

Argyle had gone 14 games with defeat in League Two before losing to Grimsby and Barnet.

"The back four and Luke (McCormick, goalkeeper) feel a little bit responsible for the last couple of games," Bradley, 25, said.

"It's probably the worst we've defended all season," he told BBC South West.

Argyle's lead at the top of the fourth tier has been cut from seven to three points, and while the Pilgrims have failed to score in their last two games, they have also conceded five goals.

"We know that in this division if we don't defend properly and we don't defend in both boxes, then we're going to lose football matches, and over the last couple of games that's what's happened.," added Bradley, who joined Argyle in the summer.

"I don't think anyone's broken us down, got through us and created a lot of chances. It's just the basics, crosses and corners, which we really need to tighten up on.

"We've got to draw a line under it now, we can't dwell on it too much. I think we've been brilliant all season up until the last couple of games, so we've got to look at that as well and take the positives of that."
