Carlisle United play Cheltenham tonight still smarting after their three nil loss to Portsmouth at the weekend.
Keith Curle says his players need to knuckle down and fight back with a good result this evening.
We caused a very good team some big problems so, there are elements that we can still work on, we need to work on, we are still a work in progress, there is more to come from this group. We need a reaction and I have not got a problem with that."
Widespread speculation that Carlisle United could benefit from a mystery billionaire investor ended on Monday evening when the club issued a formal statement confirming they have decided to end long standing talks with a 'Potential Overseas Investor (POI).
"The discussions started 20 months ago and were somewhat intermittent for the most part. Since June last year talks have progressed to a series of face-to-face meetings and, just over three months ago, an investment proposal was submitted following a visit to Brunton Park by the POI.
This was considered closely and carefully. It was followed up by a written offer to invest in the Club, which included a funding proposal.
Although there has been some movement, it was felt by the shareholders that these proposals did not present a way forward they could support and, just as crucially, the proposals were unlikely to gain the support of CUOSC members, or the Club’s fans more generally.
The Club understands that the prolonged period of time these discussions have taken has not been what anyone would have wanted. Throughout, the shareholders have sought to allow sufficient time and every opportunity for credible proposals to come forward, to be properly and diligently reviewed and for a deal to be done, if possible. This process has now run its course and we have drawn a line, and we are now looking forward.
The desire to see new investment and a succession of ownership to take the Club forward remains unchanged."
Carlisle have taken three points from their away match against Wycombe Wanderers.
United won 2-1 despite going a goal down in the opening minutes.
Carlisle's Proctor and Lambe both went onto find the net in the first half and Keith Curle's side held out for the remainder of the match to secure three points.
Cumbria Police have charged a 23-year-old man with a racially-aggravated public order offence.
Steven Bell from Carlisle was arrested following the Carlisle United match against Grimsby Town on 2 January 2017.
Bell has been bailed and is due to attend North Cumbria Magistrates’ Court on 23 March 2017.

"Our changing room has been exposed and it is one of those - you need a reaction.
"There is no better way of looking forward to a reaction than when you are playing the top of the league and saying 'go on then this is what we are about."

Carlisle United have signed Stoke City striker George Waring on a half-season loan deal.
Waring, 22, joined Everton as a teenager and left to join Stoke City at the age of 19.
He made his professional debut against Yeovil during a loan spell with Barnsley in January 2015, and scored six goals in 19 appearances for the Tykes.
The signing comes amid ongoing speculation about the future of Carlisle United's top scorer, Charlie Wyke.
George is the type of player who we feel will thrive in the environment we've created. He's got good technical ability, as you'd expect from a player coming from a club at that level, and he definitely won't struggle with the physical aspects of the game.
He's had recent experience of being with a promotion winning team and he's ready to make a mark. His size will add something different and it will give us more options with the way we can approach games, and likewise change our approach during games, so we're pleased that he's chosen to join us.
Carlisle United have signed former-Blackburn midfielder, John O'Sullivan, on an 18-month deal.
The 23-year-old was most recently on loan to Accrington Stanley, but was made a free agent by Blackburn on his return this month.
When he first went to Accrington there was a lot of talk about him and Blackburn were turning down six figure bids for him because they had high hopes for him.
"I know he's had a few offers from a higher division but we got in there early like we like to do. Whenever you watch John he stands out, and hopefully he'll stand out for us."
Keith Curle has said Carlisle United will "not be pressurised into losing our assets" following a rejected bid by Bradford City to secure Charlie Wyke.
The club were hoping to land United's leading striker, but Curle said they didn't offer what they feel is Wyke's value.
The Blues manager went on to confirm that although Bradford City were the only club to lodge an official offer, there are other clubs showing a strong interest.
