A fourth defeat in six games was one too far for Torquay United manager Gary Johnson, who described his current side as 'not good enough' after the Gulls went down 2-1 at Solihull Moors this week.
Johnson has predicted an early shake-up to his squad, which will try to avoid losing the first four home games of the season for the first time in the club's history when they face Southend United on Saturday.
Sub Klaidi Lolos pulled a late goal back at Solihull and United, who also lost 3-1 to Grimsby Town last weekend, had vociferous penalty claims turned down near the finish.
But Johnson said: ""We are not good enough, and we have to turn the personnel around quickly.
"Our supporters are still following us, and I keep having to apologise to them.
"I normally wait 10 games, but I can't wait 10 games at the minute."
