TIM McCann believes his players need to start “learning quickly” is they want to avoid a relegation dogfight this season.
Lisburn Distillery are rooted to the bottom of the Danske Bank Premiership following a run of just one win from six fixtures.
The Whites have lost five of their opening half-dozen games and conceded 17 goals.
Their latest defeat came last weekend against 10-man Coleraine.
Speaking ahead of today’s home clash with Glenavon, McCann said: “Players are making wrong decisions. They need to start learning very quickly or they are going to keep on getting punished.
“It all boils down to a lack of quality. Even when Coleraine went down to 10 men last week we never really looked like we were threatening them and that’s the frustrating thing.
“It is getting beyond a joke now. We are missing chances every week and we cannot go on like this.”
Glenavon boss Gary Hamilton admits he can empathise with McCann.
“Tim’s a good lad and he’s in the same position as myself at the minute in that he wants to get points on the board,” he said.
“Hopefully, I’ll be the one with the last laugh but it’ll be a difficult game so we’ll just wait and see.
“We’ve put in two top quality performances on the bounce now but there’s no point doing that and then going down to Distillery and not doing it.
“If we put in those levels of commitment, effort and desire then the quality’s there to be seen by everybody.”
