While I’m disappointed with a draw in our home game against Bognor on Monday, a match we were winning with four minutes to go, I have to admit that it was a fair result. Both sides had their chances. I wasn’t happy with the way we played; it’s just not right at the moment. Wilko made a couple of excellent saves, but we didn’t make their goalkeeper work enough. We had seven players out with injury – five of whom would have made the first team straight away – but I’m not one for excuses. When Lee Farrell scored, in the 77th minute, I thought we’d won it. As I’ve said before he’s a great one to pull off the bench for the last twenty minutes or so. He makes more of an impact as a sub at the moment than he does when he starts because he’s fresh, he’s fast and the opposition don’t know what to expect. Their keeper made a save from a Steve Robinson header and he twisted his body well to hit it in off the post. But then we made a mistake at the back, and they equalised. Lewis Hamilton mistimed his jump, which let their striker in to score. We can’t keep conceding goals like that: I know it’s only one a game, but that’s one too many. You can’t legislate for that sort of thing. In training you can work on pattern and shape, but a mistake’s a mistake. How can you work on mistakes? They just happen: it’s down to the players not to make them.
