Chance to look at sides

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Football -

ASH­FORD TOWN man­ager Steve Lovell has put his side’s 1-0 de­feat at home to Sit­ting­bourne down to a bad day at the of­fice, and re­vealed the con­tin­u­ing frus­tra­tion that his side fol­low one good per­for­mance with a bad one.

“Tues­day was such a con­trast from Satur­day’s ex­cel­lent per­for­mance at Cray,” Lovell be­moaned. “We didn’t de­serve to win against Sit­ting­bourne as our in­con­sis­tency came back again.

“It keeps hap­pen­ing and we’ve got to get it out of our sys­tem.”

Ash­ford won’t get the chance this week­end, as their pre­ma­ture exit from the FA Tro­phy leaves them with a gap in the fix­ture cal­en­dar.

The squad will train on Satur­day morn­ing, be­fore Lovell be­gins a week of Ry­man League Divi­sion 1 South scouting.

“It’s im­por­tant to go and watch teams you’ll be play­ing against,” Lovell ex­plained. “I’ll be go­ing down to watch Fleet and East­bourne on Satur­day. Hugo will be go­ing to an­other game, and we’ll both be on our trav­els again next Tues­day.”

High fly­ing Ash­ford Re­serves are at home to Cray Wan­der­ers.
