Lambs assistant boss Darron Gee admitted his side had produced a very furstrating display against determined league strugglers Hucknall Town but was certain that the minor wobble being suffered by the side was just a temporary one.
Gareth Sheldon opened the scoring in a dominant first half only for the visitors to equalise shortly after the restart and the Sheldon saw red with 20 to go as Tamworth searched in vain for a late winner.
"It was a very frustrating afternoon", said Gee, "up until the goal we were magnificent but then took our foot off the pedal and didn't get going again.
"The sending off didn't help our cause and although we had a few chances - including a couple of penalty claims and a handball in the area (all not given by the referee) - we couldn't find the winner. Even Michael Wylde got in on the action up front but his shot didn't go over the line.
"We know teams will come and do that to us and we are still top of the league but on another day we would have been three or four up at the break. There are no alarm bells ringing just yet."
On Wednesday evening the reserves are in action in the Conference Cup away at Stafford Rangers (Marsden Road) with a 7.30pm kick off and are at home on Saturday when they face Heather St. Johns at The Lamb, kick off 3pm.
