York boss Nigel Worthington was brutally honest in his assessment of his side's 2-0 loss to AFC Wimbledon at Bootham Crescent.
The Dons took the lead midway through the first half through Michael Smith before the striker netted his second of the game with a simple finish to take all three points back to the capital.
Worthington confessed there were no positives to take from the game, with Ryan Jarvis' blocked effort the closest his side came to scoring.
And the ex-Northern Ireland manager is now hoping his side can turn the corner, starting next weekend at home to Mansfield.
"That was a less than average performance from us," he admitted. "It was sloppy and we were second all over the pitch, there are no positives to take. It was an off day for us and it was simply not good enough.
"We got off to a great start to the season with a win against Northampton but since then people have taken their feet off the ground. At the moment we are conceding poor goals and we've talked about it, but it's still happening. As a team we've got to be more proactive with that side of things.
"Three defeats in row is not a good situation, so we've got to bounce back straight away with a good result starting next weekend. We'll continue to work and make sure we put things right."
