The fourth is to actually hit the target!
Aldershot, at home in November, was our second win of the season and it came just a few weeks after our home win against Woking giving us the amazing record of two home wins on the trot. Those games are now distant memories and we haven't won a game or even come close to winning one since.
Last weeks poor result (again) at home to Guiseley was again another low point in the history of the club and one we didn't really expect after all the hot air bollocks that had been emanating from Aggborough during our enforced winter break due to a month of cancelled games. We had been promised new, eager players and a new spirit in the camp that would see us at last getting more positive results, be they wins or draws. Instead we got a great big zilchy zero with no commitment, creativity or care and we ended up losing 1-0 at home to struggling part timers who had two chances to score and scored from both although the first was struck off for a dodgy offside call.
Again Colin Gordon has been rallying his untalented troops while batting off criticism of his negative tactics that played a lone wantaway loan striker up front by himself. Matt Barnes-Homer has now gone back to Aldershot but it's unlikely he'll be picked to play against us because he's not very good there either.
Injury wise we have both Adam Dawson and Jordan Tunnicliffe back in training but this game will be too early for them. Aldershot have just the one doubt and that's midfielder Jim Stevenson but he's also on his way back from injury too.
Last Saturday they got their second win in a row when they won, and won well, at high flying Macclesfield. Alfie Pavey, on loan from Millwall, scored their first and then Damon Lathrope completed the scoring with a disputed free kick. The previous week they had beaten Maccs Cheshire neighbours, Chester, 3-1 at home to start their 2016 with a bang and unless we get our act together quickly that good start will continue apace tomorrow.
