Combined Counties Premier Division, ko 7.45pm
Green Lane, Hounslow, Middlesex, TW4 6DH
Of late our performances have been very encouraging, and we have had good results against the top sides in the division, so we went into this basement battle against our near neighbours with expectation that we would get the points that would increase the gap between us in the fight to avoid relegation. The reality was that we produced our worst display for some time and we rightly lost to a more determined opponent.
It would be easy to blame the lack of game time, 2 matches in 5 weeks, for the lack of cohesion in our play but that cannot be blamed for the lack of desire shown by our players. Our opponents seemed more aware of the league situation and went about their business with enthusiasm and once they took the lead in the first half we never really looked as though we could get back into the game.
All in all a very disappointing night. Fingers cross the boys raise their game this Saturday when we entertain Raynes Park Vale.
