TADLEY Calleva boss Danny Dolan is looking for a response from his players when they face Brockenhurst in Wessex League Division One on Saturday (kick-off 3pm).
Last weekend, his side lost 2-1 at Pewsey Vale despite taking the lead.
Dolan said: “We played for 30 minutes and after that we did not perform and there was a complete lack of effort. If we play like that this weekend against Brockenhurst we will got thumped.”
Visiting Tadley took the lead after 30 minutes from Danny Vickers with a 25-yard strike that flew into the top corner.
New signing Grant Powell went close before Pewsey levelled as the ball hit a post, but the home forward was the quickest onto the rebound.
After the break a free header saw the home side take all three points and deny Tadley the chance of moving up to seventh spot.
