If Ben or Gavin had had their shooting boots on yesterday we would have won in a cantor.
It is frustrating, an excellent performance against a Carshalton team who have the best away record in the league but an inability to put away one of those countless chances cost us two points.
We continue to look to strengthen the forward line but it isn’t easy to find someone who can add to what we have and that we can afford or who wants to come. We will keep trying. Though we are not alone, I read in the Non League paper today that St Albans can’t find a striker and we know that many clubs are looking for someone, a decent striker is clearly very hard to come by at present. Mind you if you thought our misses were bad, take a look at Chris Iwelumo’s for Scotland against Norway.
The league position and the run of form are deeply frustrating. But we have to stay positive. The performance against Hornchurch was much better and we didn’t deserve to lose and yesterday was another step forward. If we play as we did yesterday in most games we won’t be down the bottom of the league for too long. But it is easy to write that and the consistency we all want to see will only come if we continue to believe and work hard and it all starts again on Tuesday night at home to Canvey. Hope to see you all there.
