Individual errors have blighted the Steelmen's recent displays and they have lost four in a row in league and cup - including Saturday's 3-1 reverse at Kilmarnock - to slip to 10th place and just one point off the bottom.

Robbo said: "We’re a team lacking confidence. We’re not winning football matches at the moment.

“So when you go 2-1 down and 3-1 down again a runner runs off us from the throw and the penalty is just a lazy leg left out.

“So you can see the confidence getting drained out of the boys when that happens.

“The only way to turn that around is to work even harder.

“And I keep saying it, we need to cut out the individual errors.

“If we don’t take those opportunities away from home against a very good Killie side then their quality shone through in the second half.

“And that was the big disappointment for me was our second half performance.

“I’ve been very loyal to certain people and I will have to make changes now.”

Robbo is staying optimistic and thinks his team can take maximum points from their next three matches, Livingston and St Johnstone at home and St Mirren away.

“It’s a massive game against Livingston,” the ’Well gaffer said.

“These next three games could dictate our season now.”
