Managers notes:
Tuesday really was disappointing, itís game I definitely feel like we threw away through lack of concentration and discipline amongst ourselves. It was a scrappy first half but started to get going with about 15 minutes of it to play. Devizes were having lots of the ball but not really doing much with it where as we did create some chances but just couldnít put them away. The breakthrough came just before halftime where the ball dropped to Jordan Gullis in the box for to calmly slot home for his first goal for the club. We were slow out for the second half and were punished, a cross from the left looped over Brandon and dropped straight into the net to make it 1-1. Straight from the kick off we gave the ball away and instead of regrouping we argued with each other thus completely switched off as Devizes took the lead. We managed to re-group and equalized soon after through Josh Hard but instead of pushing on we gave away two stupid goals and despite scoring late on through Ben Howlett we lost 4-3. I was disappointed to lose the game but more disappointed and angry with attitude of the players and we had a discussion about this after the game and then again on Wednesday evening at training.
