As I looked at the 2 hour journey to Folkestone I wondered what the prospect of getting a Leatherhead winning perform would be. Mentally and physically tired; key players inured; a new player coming in; and an opposition with no other distractions. Fortunately work commitments meant I could not leave in time as, had I gone, I would have been disappointed.
To be fair the first half it sounds like we made a fight of it. Good spells of pressure and going close. In the second half, the novelty of having a new player in the centre of midfield wore off and we played pretty much as I had predicted and we were brushed aside.
Not even the emergence of Sammy Moore could lift the side as we conceded three goals without response. "Unacceptable" tweeted the manager... we will have to lift ourselves for Staines on Saturday.
