What were our expectations coming into the season? What were they after the Folkestone game? What are they now?
We over reacted after the Folkestone game and judging by some of the reactions after yesterday there is plenty of over reaction going on now. Margate were no slouches. Someone said they hadn’t started the season well but drawing at home to Chelmsford isn’t bad and losing at East Thurrock looks a bit different after they beat AFC yesterday. Also interesting that Folkestone won comfortably yesterday at Harlow.
Our injury hoodoo continues with Sean Thomas lasting just 45 minutes. Peter Dean also picked up a groin problem though hopefully not too serious. Not much light at the end of the tunnel with any of the other injuries at the moment either – this means we are missing important players, the likes of Carl, Deano, Steve Hughes, Grossie and James Gray.
Let’s remember we are 3 games in – 2 good performances and 1 not so good.
Ashford tomorrow will be an interesting test as they have only achieved one draw in their first three games. Yesterday it seems they were well beaten at Hastings who we play on Saturday. No doubt Gavin Bamford will be superb against us and I would ask that instead of barracking him we get behind our team and cheer them on to a good away performance – and a result.
