WESTON boss Andy Gurney blasted three sloppy errors that saw his side crash to back-to-back defeats in the opening two games of the season.

Gurney said his much-improved squad could have taken points from the fixtures against Staines Town and Basingstoke Town, but the blunders cost them dearly.

The Seagulls manager told the Mercury his charges will need to improve their defending if they are to get off the mark in the Conference South.

He said: "It's been sloppy errors that have cost us, which is disappointing because we had chances in both games.
