OWEN Heary admits that he's frustrated by the defensive errors which have led to a dismal start to 2015 for his Sligo Rovers side.

Sligo, tipped as dark horses in the title race, have just two points from five games, the latest loss a 3-0 defeat to Dundalk on Friday night.

"Defensive mistakes, errors, have gone gone wrong for us," says Heary.

"We had three games in six days and it's been hard to work with the players on the training ground but we have to cut our those mistakes.

"I think the confidence is there but we have to do the basics right and we have a couple of big week coming up, we have to start winning games to give ourselves a chance.

"We have had a tough start, we played four teams who have been together for a while and have a good balance, it's important that we have a big game next week that we have to win," added Heary after the loss to the champions. "Two of their goals came from balls over the top and we have to deal with them better. We had a reaction in the second half, we had comes chances and didn't take them and gave away another goals on the counter attack. At 2-0 it was important that we got the next goal but we didn't get it, which is disappointing."
