BARROW AFC boss Pete Wild has said that his side are not 'panicking' after their 5-3 defeat against Salford City. 

Despite a double from Cole Stockton and a goal from Tyrell Warren on his return from a long-term injury, the Bluebirds were condemned to their third consecutive League Two defeat by Karl Robinson's Ammies.

Reflecting on this result at the Peninsula Stadium, Wild highlighted the key areas where he wants to see his side improve ahead of their clash with Graham Alexander's Bradford City at Holker Street.

He said: "Their organisation and one-on-one defending around our box.

"That is the bit that lies on the shoulder of each individual, you can put as many training sessions as you want on but I can't go out on the pitch at three o'clock on Saturday afternoon and get them to defend better one v one.

"They have to do that better and for the majority of the season they have done that, so they have got to keep working on their individual stuff and cutting out the individual errors and the quicker they do that better and I am sure they will do that."

Despite the 5-3 defeat against the Ammies, Wild also remained firm in his belief that there was no reason for Barrow to be 'panicking' and deviating from their processes which inspired success in the early stage of the season.

He said: "The worst thing you can do as a manager at this time of year is start changing things because then shows to the players that you are panicking, that you are worried that there is something wrong.

"We have done so well to get to this position doing it our way, so the key message from me is that we keep doing what we do, but do it better and we know that teams pay us a lot of respect and attention.

"When teams do that we have to make sure we stand up to the task and that is what we have been working on this week
