ACCRINGTON turned in another lack-lustre performance as their Conference promotion hopes took another knock.
Struggling Tamworth celebrated the double over the Reds - and left the shell-shocked management team promising new players after three games without a win.
"We possibly need one or two players here and there to provide the spark again. It is deja vu with us. One mistake is costing us week in week out and it is not on," said assistant manager Jimmy Bell.
The Lambs scored the winner in the 48th minute when Jonathan Smith failed to clear a ball and Bob Taylor set up debutant Mark Rawle, on loan from Oxford, to fire home.
The Reds only real chance was on 70 minutes when Lee McEvilly's shot was palmed out by the Lambs keeper.
"We keep shooting ourselves in the foot," added Bell. "A couple of wins and we could have concreted ourselves in the play-off spots but for some unknown reason we keep making silly mistakes - and then we can't buy a goal at the moment."
It was made worse as play-off rivals Hereford, Morecambe and Exeter all lost and Stanley failed to capitalise.
