We've lost our way a bit, but personally I was expecting this to happen at some point this season given the number of youngsters we have in the squad. I'm not going to point fingers at any individuals - those who made costly errors over the past few games know who they are.

In my opinion we can't change what's happened in the league this month - but we can do our best to get back to winning ways through the next three months. There's still 18 league games to go - 54 points up for grabs. I reckon 10 or 11 wins (or 30-33 points) will secure a play-off spot. That's entirely attainable. Here's to a win at Burgess Hill on Saturday.

Completely agree with you Steve. We rather got away with it on Saturday, but our luck had to run out. Maybe earlier in the season, someone would have got a touch to the ball when their defence made a hash of the backpass after 15 minutes.

The only consolation was the privilege of watching another absolutely outstanding Hendon goal, Ashley’s run and shot last night was very special which, by my calculations, makes it three clear candidates for goal of the season: Niko’s against Thurrock, Zak’s against Folkestone and Ashley’s against Leatherhead.

I have to say that though not listed amongst the greatest goals this season, David B, that Niko’s astonishing goal against Brightlingsea at home in December was far and away better not only than any other goal this season but possibly any goal in any season. I can only judge goals I have seen live, and regret missing out on others, but I know that I am not alone in my opinion! It’s simply the luck of capturing that moment and being there!

From yours truly - The F Word - Fatigue. Our style, our never say die approach,a trip to sunny Suffolk. Saturday, I thought our first genuine attempt at higher tempo was when we netted our first. Physically looked beyond leggy and unable to compete. As frustrating as it was, almost inevitable and completely understandable. The game looked lost from the very start. Credit to Leatherhead, worked very hard and put the game away. The goals we let in had a tired look about them. No criticism, the lads have earned some slack. Very impressed with their number 8. skilful and work-rate.
I chose to attend last night over Leiston. The Tanners, for me represent far better the type of teams coming up. Left backs over the halfway line kinda sides. Tough games.
Still in good shape, fitness all-round can only improve and (some) players must be due back.
No concerns, keep plodding away. We go again.
