March Town united manager Chris Bartlett says he hopes their disappointing 2-1 loss at Needham Market Reserves will serve as a “kick up the backside”.
The Hares made their customary slow start and fell behind after less than two minutes.
But, unlikely in previous weeks where they had quickly levelled, they went a further goal behind.
Denny Escorcio got one back after the break but it proved too little too late as March’s seven game unbeaten league run came to an end.
Bartlett said: “The warning signs were there because we keep conceding early. We had plenty of the ball but we didn’t convert our chances. We had 19 chances to their seven.

“Their keeper should have been sent off for denying a goalscoring opportunity but some days you get the decsisions, some days you don’t.
“We were not good enough at either end of the pitch. We need to improve our concentration.
