I had a word with some of the Lewes fans before the game at
Thurrock on Monday, telling them I really valued their support.
I asked them to stick behind the team, because we’d
been going through a bad patch and we needed it. I didn’t
know just how bad things were going to get. We started well,
and were 2-0 up within half an hour. We were controlling the
game: Gary Holloway burst through the middle, made a third
man run, and smashed it home. Five minutes later Jamie Cade
chested the ball down and volleyed it in from just inside
the area. We could have had three and we should have had three.
Siggy had a valid goal chalked off. 3-0 and it would have
been game over. But it was 2-0, and 2-0 is one of the most
dangerous scores to go into half time with. I told them that
in the dressing room. You think you’ve won but if the
other team get one back they’re right back in it.
Well that’s just what happened. They got one back and
we fell apart all over the pitch. After their first we were
just hanging on, and our defending was diabolical. We had
an extra man in midfield, but instead of the defenders rolling
it to him they were just hoofing it forward. Thurrock got
another goal, and still kept coming at us.
