John Coleman says individual mistakes are stopping his side being in their rightful spot of a top six place.
The mid-table Reds lost 3-0 to leaders Burton Albion but the scoreline flattered the Brewers with Stanley failing to capitalise on a spell of pressure.
And Coleman says his team have got to keep their heads up and keep battling - as they will get what they deserve eventually.
"Mistakes are killing us at the moment and they are stopping us being where we should be in the league which is the top six," said Coleman.
"3-0 flatters them but that happens in football, we did not get what we deserved.
"Credit to Burton they were clinical. We gifted them the first goal with handball for a penalty and then we had chances and I think if we had got one, we would have won the game.
"But individual mistakes are costing us. We are as good as any team in the league and we can't get too low about this because we played well.
"We have to stick our chests out and keep going."
