Well, I can only say that I was pretty disappointed with this month after August. Insecure play by my team produced results that we didn't want to happen. But even after these results, the brightest star was again Adam Campbell
who scored seven goals in seven matches
. First match of the month was against Kidderminster, and after August, good play continued in that match as we produced 21 shots on goal with 53% of possession. Adam Campbell scored two goals on this match and one goal by Bennert.
Next match was played against AFC Telford in which we played draw. Again, we were dominant but we were insecure in defense which produced this kind of result. That draw really scared me but next match against Dartford has took away my concerns and gave us another win with again two goals by Campbell. Domination got us victory and took us back on 1st place in table. But, next match dropped us on 2nd placed as we were unlucky against Macclesfield. Although we had ball in our legs we lost that match, giving us our first defeat this season which frightened me as I thought that it would be beginning of an end.
In match against Welling, my concerns became reality as we were losing 0-1 until 75th minute when we equalized but even if we had 26 shots on goal and they had only 4 shots, we drew that match too. Only goal on that match for us scored James Curtis from corner. Next was Aldershot and another two goals by Adam Campbell and finally, after two matches without win, we were able to show desire and to win that match. Final match of month was against Lincoln but that match was so boring that there were only couple of minutes of live play that I watched. Match without chances and desire from my squad to win it.
Next month must be better as this mistakes cannot be made anymore!
