The home game against Basingstoke two days earlier was another one we dominated in the first half. We went in 1-0 and it could have been – it should have been - two or three, and game over. Before Siggy scored, Jay Saunders missed an open goal, Boothy blasted an easy one wide, Wormull put one over and hit the crossbar with another, and Gary Holloway had a half-volley on the edge of the six yard box brilliantly saved. You have to put some of those sorts of chances away. Early on in the second half they scored a penalty, and then another goal from a free-kick and suddenly we were 2-1 down. Heads went down for a bit, but ultimately I think we reacted well. We dominated the last 20 minutes. We got six corners on the trot, and Jamie Cade knocked in the equaliser in the 88th minute. I was happy we didn’t lose the game, but that’s about it. We’re not producing, and I don’t like it. Nobody is more disappointed than me. This is the worst I’ve felt since I’ve been at Lewes. We’re not used to being where we are – just below halfway in the table. It’s a reality check, because we’ve always been in the top six. A reality check for the management, a reality check for the players and a reality check for the fans. Some of the Lewes supporters went mad after the Thurrock game and they had every right to, but after venting their spleen they’ve got to get behind the team. This is the time when the players need the fans.
