Geoff – On the Record (Croydon Away)

Once again I must comment on the great support we had from our fans at Lordswood last Saturday. You all really got behind your team and helped pull them through a difficult time for the club. The players gave everything they had on the day in an effort to stop the poor run of results of late. We created a large number of chances in the first half and dominated the game, but could not finish. The goals came in the second half with good finishes from Dan, Timmy, and Trey.

You may remember my comments of 3 weeks ago regarding John Ralph and his amazing sprinting against Rob and Dan. Well can you believe it he has followed that up with two great passes from the back creating the first and third goals. The down side of that is he will make sure we all know about it. But keep up the progress John as its never to late to improve.

We had to take a lot more pressure from Lordswood during the second half and we had to rely on breaking out at times. Our back four played very well and defended better than we have done for weeks. As well as we played during the game,make no mistake the game hinged on one moment of brilliance from our keeper Josh who had a great all round game on the day. At 1-0 up he made a world class save to his left to preserve our one nil lead, this created the platform to go on and score two more goals to clinch a much needed win.

We go to Croydon this Saturday which will be our hardest game for some weeks. If we are to play our way into a challenging position we must come away from these type of games and take something from the game. Moving forward during the short term we are identifying players that we think will fit into our group and we must try and sign 3 players to strengthen the squad.

Let me finish by saying every week positive comments are made in the dressing room about the great support you all bring both home and the growing away fans, please keep it up.
