Shorten Brief

SATURDAY was a really frustrating affair as we played a totally unadventurous Kings Lynn Reserves side who were more than content to keep 11 players behind the ball and say to us break us down if you can.

SATURDAY was a really frustrating affair as we played a totally unadventurous Kings Lynn Reserves side who were more than content to keep 11 players behind the ball and say to us break us down if you can.

These were pretty predictable tactics based on our victory at the Walks 10 days previous and our recent demolition of Woodbridge.

Had a fantastic strike by Ian Dawson, which hit both posts, resulted in the goal it deserved it would no doubt have been a totally different story.

We created further opportunities after this that should have resulted in goals - however we did not capitalise.

Unfortunately, the officials added to our frustration with their inability to keep the game flowing, which totally dampened our tempo and played into the hands of our visitors who were more than happy to run the clock down.

Games like this are normally decided by that one decision that goes your way, or that extra piece of quality.

On the decisions going our way, we had a penalty shout that was called outside the box instead of inside and an offside where the man coming back was flagged rather than Allicion Blake who was going through to score from an onside position - so two key decisions that went against us.

But to be fair we also lacked that extra bit of quality that we have shown in our last three victories. So this was two points dropped.

Wednesday witnessed the visit of Leiston who for me are the best footballing side in the league therefore getting anything from this game was going to be a big challenge.

It was another tight affair, which resulted in another 0-0 draw - and this is the first time all season that we have failed to score in consecutive games.

It was really encouraging that we demonstrated our ability to compete with Leiston all over the pitch and we believe that we did enough on the night to win the game and unfortunately we found ourselves again talking about decisions no going our way.

We will however go into tomorrow's fixture at Needham Market with confidence as we aim to get ourselves back into winning ways.
