Good evening and welcome to tonight’s league match against Redditch. Obviously we come into the game on the back of a very disappointing away defeat at Tiverton.

The game itself was never going to be a spectacle on an atrocious pitch, however we said to the lads that the team that would win the game would make the least amount of mistakes, and unfortunately we made a couple of defensive errors that let Tiverton in during second half, and were punished.

We had performed relatively well first half, and we would not have been too disappointed to come away with a nil nil draw. It didn’t help that thirty seconds after making our third sub Chris Flood got booted in the head meaning he had to come off and reduced us to ten players for 25 minutes on an energy sapping pitch.

We are all aware that the second half performance in the last two games have not been good enough, and cost us important points, and that we need to address this.

A team does not become poor overnight, however we are aware that we need to try and make a few changes to freshen things up, and get us back to where we have been for a large part of the season.

We have put in three seven day approaches over the last few days, and after Banbury we hope to be able to make one or two new additions, and this will mean one or two going.

It is vitally important that the fans get behind the lads at this time, as when you are going through a run where you are not up to usual standards, you need that confidence to be able to try things, but having people getting on your backs only pushes people further into their shells.

It is clear we are not going to win the title, and maybe taking that off the table may take a bit of pressure of the lads, as seeing yourself so far off it albeit with games in hand is not easy mentally, so our priority now is to get ourselves back in those play offs, and see where the season goes from there.

Enjoy the game and get behind the lads, they deserve it for what they have given to the club for the vast majority of the season.
