Collingwood coach Nathan Buckley says he doesn’t believe its all doom and gloom for the club after going down to Essendon by 18 points on Tuesday.

Collingwoods woes in front of goal were instrumental in the loss, with the team kicking one goal eight in the third quarter as the Bombers pulled away.

Buckley (pictured)  says while its disappointing for the club to slump to 13th on the ladder, it the Magpies forwards were converting their chances, the story would be very different.
