Liverpool Ladies manager Robbie Johnson is disappointed that his side are still without a win but feels that some of their performances have deserved at least a point.
But Johnson knows the table does not lie and is looking to change things around accordingly.
Liverpool are now four points adrift at the bottom of the table and host a Bristol Academy side who are also struggling near the foot of the new division.
Speaking about the season so far he said: "Obviously we are disappointed because we are yet to win.
"We are disappointed because we feel that some of the performances have actually warranted a far more positive outcome than what we have had so far.
"However, the league doesn't lie because it says we only have three points. What we have to do is take that on the chin and deal with it accordingly."
Johnson agrees with midfielder Katie Brusell that individual errors are
costing the side, but feels that it is not just at the back where they are making mistakes.
They have failed to score in their past five games and the Liverpool manager wants his team to start taking their chances.
"We have to be more ruthless," he added. "We have gotten ourselves into shooting positions and haven't taken them.
"A lot of people tend to not be quite as critical of those situations but goals change results and the momentum of the games."
With five games remaining, Johnson has only one aim - to win all of them. And the manager insists he is not going to change his approach heading into the games.
"We will approach these games in exactly the same as we have approached the others," said Johnson.
"How we get those five wins is dealing with the games individually and taking them one at a time.
"If we, with the players that we have, focus on that then we are capable of being as competitive as anybody else in this league."
