Captain Graham Alexander believes Preston fans had every right to vent their anger after North End's loss against Bournemouth.
Juvhel Tsoumou sent the Lillywhites in a goal to the good at the break but the hosts shipped three second-half goals to end a miserable October where they have collected a solitary League One point.
Preston were booed from the field by their supporters and Alexander understands the frustration that poured down from the stands.
"We are not going to get cheered off the pitch if we perform like we did in the second half," he told the Lancashire Evening Post. "We let everyone down - ourselves, the supporters and the manager.
"The management staff do their job Monday to Friday, then it's up to the players to do our jobs on a Saturday, show how good we are, how strong we are and how much we want to win.
"We didn't do that against Bournemouth, so every player on the pitch has to look at themselves and take some responsibility. In the cold light of day, we can't get away from the fact of how many goals we are conceding."
