McAllister calls for "more of the same"

By Brian Seeney

Bennett will be big miss

Gosport Borough player/manager Craig McAllister wants "more of the same" when he takes his side to Swindon Supermarine tomorrow (3pm) a week after their sparkling 3-1 win over high flying Hendon writes Brian Seeney.

"You can't play brilliantly every week but if we can try to keep those concentration levels high and work hard for each other then I'm sure we will pick up a lot more wins and produce a lot more performances like that," said McAllister.

"I'd like to see more of the same."

Boro's last and only away win in the Evo-Stik South Premier Division South came at Harrow Borough way back on 15th September when leading a scorer Ryan Pennery, who has hit the target 11 times this season, got the only goal of the game six minutes from the end.

"We need to start picking up points away from home," admitted McAllister.

"Last Saturday was a result that was coming with the right tweak here and there and most of all improving our concentration levels.

"We defended really well and that made a big difference.

"We talked about cutting out silly goals and conceding like that and we showed we are capable of doing that.

"We were good in both boxes and yes, it could have been even better. But overall I was really happy with the result. All the lads were excellent."

McAllister has a full squad to choose from apart from long-term injured Eddie Wakley, Lucas McCartney and keeper Mark Childs, but will have to do without midfield new boy George Bennett.

The 23-year-old is serving a one match ban for the double yellow card sending off he picked up in his debut game at Farnborough nine days ago.

"He will be a huge miss to us because he has come in and made a huge difference. He's been a presence," said McAllister

"As soon as he came into the club he was demanding more out of everyone and that's good to see and we want to see more of that. I like that. He works very hard and I'm really pleased with him. He will be a big miss."

McAllister reckons Supermarine are "probably in a false position" in the table just one point off the relegation zone. Boro are in 15th spot, four points ahead of tomorrow's opponents on 19 points and only three points shy of the middle of the table.

"They started the season well and it's still early on. But they'll be fighting for their lives to get out of the position they are in now so it will be as hard as if we were playing one of the sides at the top. It will be a difficult game.

"We need to work hard, get in people's faces and concentrate as well as we did last week then we will get something."
