Whilst I was stood there on Saturday politely applauding, in my own quietly frustrated manner, our capitulation on Saturday, I also took a moment to consider the previous week.

A win against an admittedly out of form, yet top eight side in Leiston was followed by a win against a bang in form Billericay side. Before kick-off against Leiston, how many of us thought we were dead and buried - or at least would be by the time Billericay had beaten us. How many of us genuinely expected anything better than 4 points, maximum from these three games?

Let's maintain a bit of perspective. Yes, the second 45 Saturday was desperately dismal, but when viewed in conjuction with the rest of the week perhaps not entirely unsurprising.

I saw the word gutless bandied about on Saturday evening. I thought the performance was many things but gutless wasn't one of them. Tired, disappointing, depressing - absolutely - but gutless? Absolutely not. If those wins against Leiston and Billericay proved anything, it was that this collection of players have character, that they care and that they give it all. A misplaced pass doesn't mean they don't care, a missed tackle likewise.

We are still alive and the reason we are is down to this set of players. Let's give them the benefit of the doubt unlike some of those that went before them this season.
