Same old, same old as Boro sink at Supermarine

By Brian Seeney

Familiar errors punished again

Gosport Borough player/manager Craig McAllister confessed to be "still scratching my head as to how we lost that football game" after his side went down 2-1 at Swindon Supermarine yesterday writes Brian Seeney.

"It's really frustrating. We had opportunities again to get something out of the game and we had a lot of ball in the second half, but didn't take those opportunities.

"It's that inconsistency again. It's the word I've used after four or five games recently.

"We are still having little sloppy moments and lack of concentration and I keep telling the same people about that.

"We started the game really well and could have been one or two nil up inside the first ten minutes.

"Then we were sloppy at a throw-in and as a result conceded a goal.

"We need to stop those things happening. It requires a little bit of extra hard work to stop that happening and the players have spoken about that amongst ourselves.

"It's little slight things and we are getting punished time and time again for."

Supermarine's first goal on 15 minutes by Stuart Fleetwood was quickly followed seven minutes later by their second from Ryan Campbell.

"When we conceded the second goal so quickly you kind of expect the game to be over.

"When you are away from home and 2-0 down, you can't expect to score three goals and go on to win it even though potentially we could have with the opportunities we created," said McAllister.

Tony Lee pulled one back for Boro on the half-hour which McAllister described as "a great goal and well taken on the volley" as the striker got between the two Supermarine centre halves and scored from close range.

"At half time we talked and felt we had a real good chance to get something and that it was in our hands. But we just couldn't get that second goal.

"It was another defeat and really disappointing because we are going over the same things again, over and over," said McAllister.
