I'm the man, insists defiant Daish.

Byline: Chris Evans sport@coventrytelegraph.net

LIAM Daish insists he is still the right man for Nuneaton Town, despite overseeing a run of just one victory in 13 matches.

Since taking over from Brian Reid in September, he has only staved off defeat on five of 17 attempts - leading the club from one horror show to the next.

"It's difficult," admitted the former Sky Blues defender. "I can't legislate for some things. I can't legislate for being without Andy Brown and Jack Dyer, who are supposed to be players that would really improve us.

"I can't legislate for only being able to bring in loans. I'm pick-'m picking up pieces, trying to get a side that's fitter and more organised.

"I can't make a player be able to pick a pass out at the right time or make the right decision.

"We've given away soft goals in the past and I can't legislate for that.

"That's not coaching, that's basic decisions and defending.

Players have got to take responsibility for that.

"I'll take responsibility for the whole lot, but it's a tough job. I think I am the right man because I think I know what I'm doing. I've been dealt a tough hand, but I haven't given up on it."
