Lowestoft Town club notes by Terry Lynes
TUESDAY evening's visit to Concord Rangers proved to be a night to forget as the Blues crashed to their heaviest defeat of the season.
Concord went into the game on the back of nine consecutive wins, which had propelled them up to second place in the table and they were brim full of confidence. After conceding a goal inside the opening two minutes the Blues saw Adam Smith slide into the pitch perimeter barrier moments later.
As play continued the Blues defender lay prone just off the pitch awaiting the arrival of the paramedics and it was some 30 minutes before he was able to get to his feet and helped back to the dressing rooms. This incident seemed to affect the Blues concentration and they seemed to lose their appetite for the game as they produced their poorest display of the season.
