Ferriby lost to Harrogate Town on Tuesday off the back of being defeated at Curzon Ashton, writes Tom Feaheny.
They next face Brackley Town who have won their opening two matches and Housham knows how tough it will be.
“They have started with two wins and done well, so it’s going to be another difficult test for us.
"I’ve said to the lads if teams beat us I want to make sure that they have been in a tough game.”
Despite their two loses, Housham believes it could have been different especially on Tuesday.
“Football is about key chances and we know that in the game on Tuesday if we took our chances at the key moments it’s a different game.
"I saw a better improvement from the lads and they need to not drop from those standards."
