Excerpts from the Chairman's programme notes...

  • On the last two games…

“Our home game last Saturday with top of the table Luton had a very exciting last 15 minutes that made up for the rest of the game, after both sides had effectively cancelled each other out.

“If one side was going to score it looked like us, until the ref gave Luton a hotly contested penalty, which they duly converted.

“Fortunately, our lads never gave up and Danny Newton came to the rescue with a great goal from a Kenners corner to equal the score.

“In that last 15 minutes there could have been two or three more goals, but it ended 1-1 which was probably a fair result over the 90 minutes.

"Tuesday saw us take the long trip to Forest Green and, after a bright start and a goal in front, we lost Alex Revell to a red card and then switched off once again just before half time and allowed FGR to equalise.

"The second half went as predicted in that we gave up two more goals and came home with nothing."

  • On tomorrow’s match against Yeovil

“Tomorrow is a chance to get back to winning ways – Yeovil have had a decent run just lately, following their great FA Cup draw and are climbing away from the relegation places.

“With a game in hand over us they sit just one place below us, one point behind so we need to win today and stretch that lead to four points.”

  • On the rest of the season…

“Darren has a lot of options now and this is the time of the season where players need to dig deep to earn a shirt and be part of what we are doing. We significantly strengthened the squad in January with five very strong players. We also brought Kevin Lokko back from loan at Dagenham and introduced young Joe White to our environment.

“There is no denying that our league position isn’t where we expect it to be, but every game we play is a chance to turn the corner to winning ways and a strong finish to the season with a settled squad means we go into next season full of hope and expectation."
