Assistant manager Declan O'Hara has hit out at Cliftonville's poor defensive record this season after the Reds threw away another two-goal lead on Saturday.
The Solitude men were pegged back by Coleraine after leading 2-0, the collapse coming a week after dropping vital points against Carrick Rangers when 3-1 up at half-time.
Paddy McLaughlin's men have now dropped four points from winning positions in the past 10 days, but still lead the Irish Premiership by a single point from champions Linfield and Larne in third.

O'Hara hit out at his side's porous defence this season, with the Reds having already conceded 31 goals in 24 league games - 12 more than Linfield and 16 ahead of Larne.
“We could have lost it but we also could have won it at the end when Joe’s had two chances and Ronan’s had a chance,” O'Hara told the club's website.
“When you’re 2-0 up, it feels like a defeat to be quite honest. It was the same last Friday night against Carrick when we dropped points in the last minute. Today, we’re two up, well in the game and Coleraine changed shape and we didn’t deal with it.
“The goals we’re conceding at the minute are totally, totally not acceptable from our defence right through to our midfield and frontmen. It’s down to us as staff to put it right.
“I think that’s 31 goals we’ve conceded in the League this season, which is a lot for a team that’s sitting where we are. It’s a concern because it’s not like us. Last year, I think we had 21 or 22 clean sheets and we were defending as a unit.
“We’ve worked on it, we’ve watched it on the big screen, we’re trying to put it right and, as a staff and management team, we can only do so much. The players are on the pitch and they have to deal with the situation.
"One thing we will do is when we’re back in here on Monday night, we’ll put it right and get ready for going down to Glenavon for another difficult game.”
