After going practically 75% of the season with only two clean sheets to their name, they have now doubled that tally in the last two games. The latter a credible draw against a side pushing for the play-offs in Tonbridge Angels, thus completing a mediocre double of drawing both games against them.
If there is hope for our survival it won’t come from this draw alone but the change the style we are now playing. No more inviting pressure by constantly overplaying it from the back; Louis Wells can now get his boots dirty and pick out a player further up the pitch. The endless sideways movement around the box has been replaced with more purposeful attacks, giving the other team something more to think about. The end result is a more entertaining game and a few points on the board. Pity it took until nearly March to work this out.
It could have been more though but for the visiting ‘keeper who pulled off two fantastic saves. Kadell looked like he had scored in the first half when he picked out the top corner from a powerful volley but the ‘keeper responded and tipped over. Then in the second half Jerry prodded a ball into the bottom corner but again we were thwarted.
Wells was called into action notably once to keep us level and take us within two points of Sudbury.
Dulwich will have a replay in the Trophy to contend with so that trip will have to wait. Just Bognor Regis to look forward to on Saturday then….
