De­fi­ant boss Lovell: We will get it right

De­feat at Mer­stham makes it six without win But its not all doom and gloom, says man­ager

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Junior Football -

ASH­FORD Town man­ager Steve Lovell is con­vinced his side will get things right af­ter they ex­tended their win­less streak to six games with de­feat at Mer­stham on Tues­day night.

Yet an­other in­di­vid­ual de­fen­sive mis­take cost the Nuts and Bolts against the Sur­rey side but Lovell is sure that it won’t be too long be­fore his side start pro­duc­ing re­sults again.

He said: “It’s not all doom and gloom. We are not too far from get­ting things right. Things just aren’t go­ing our way at the mo­ment.

“We de­fended well against Mer­stham, as we have been do­ing over the last cou­ple of weeks, but then one mis­take cost us the game.

“Jimmy (El­ford) had a great game, apart from the mis­take, and since Craig Wilkins came in, he and Sean Ray have been ex­cel­lent.

“But we have gone from scor­ing and con­ced­ing loads to the ex­act op­po­site.

“Goals con­fi­dence and be chang­ing things around again at the week­end in an

breed I’ll



the at­tempt prob­lem.”

Fleet Town are Ash­ford’s op­po­nents in Ry­man League, Divi­sion 1 South on Satur­day and Lovell is an­tic­i­pat­ing an­other tough en­counter.

Lovell (pic­tured) added: “Fleet are a good side, dif­fi­cult to play against. They got a good win against Croy­don on Tues­day and will give us a chal­lenge. Their pitch is not great but we’ll go there, hope­fully con­tinue to de­fend well.”

Lovell has no in­jury or sus­pen­sion wor­ries ahead of the game.
