From Matt:

Really disappointed with the result and the manner in which it came yesterday but proud of the performance and the way the team carry out the way we want to play. We created chances and have been hit with two sucker punches late in the first half and late in the second half. Of course we must be better in both boxes but I think as an overall performance we were just found wanting a little bit in front of goal and also to be fair some great saves from the Ashford keeper and a couple of goal line clearances as well.  Sometimes luck just doesn’t prevail, but I can’t fault the players application and attitudes we have a strong group of players and with Greg Cundle, Freddie Yao and Jack Conway to come back I am confident we will continue to push on this season.

We have another week now to prepare for a tough away fixture against Ramsgate who are doing really well at the moment and hopefully we should have a clean bill of health and we can get back to winning ways.

I’d like to thank again the supporters for the noise they created yesterday and even the support after losing the game and the positive comments. It’s really encouraging for the players and staff to be on the same page as you as supporters seeing what’s trying to be achieved here. We really are progressing on and off the pitch and we will continue to work hard to keep moving in a forward direction.
