    go through a patch

    Hi!

    My dictionary states that "patch" in sentences like "Ipswich is going through a patch, having lost its last five matches" is used in BrE.
    Would any AE speaker come up with the AmE equivalent of that?

    Thank you!

    Re: go through a patch

    That's used in AE too.
