Having heard great things from around the club and reports about the new look Hartley side, and having not seen the team play since the last time they succumbed easily to Basingstoke, I must have put the mockers on them because their performance this week was way below part from the enlightment of previous weeks, especially in the second half, where we seemed to lose our way, we looked tired, and there was no inspiration. We were certainly second best. We gave possession away to easily to the opposition, we were caught in possession too often and some of the simple passing was dreadful. By the end of the game we supporters felt if we had played another 90 minutes we would not have scored. We still eak goals by making silly mistakes and get punished, which is shown by the fact we have now gone 17 games since keeping a clean sheet!!!!
I only hope that this is a one off blip in the team's performance and that next Saturday at Walton we will show our true colours and come out fighting. UP THE ROW
