Season Three: January Update
After we recovered from a loss in form, we were looking to drive a home a statement that we are genuine promotion candidates. The turn of the year is not only a festivity but a time when new vows are made, when a new year of a million possibilities begins. Could we open 2015 with a bang?
Two wins and two draws, respectable results in my book. We got what we deserved in the end but we would have liked more points. We opened with two draws against Cambridge and Alfreton, who both battled hard for the result. We did well to come back in both games to claim a point. Eastleigh was a tense game but we scraped a win though substitute Tom Rutter. We then went on to pummel Havant & Waterlooville 3-0 at their place, with Wilde, Anoruo and Mahon all on the score sheet. There weren't any stand-out players this month, and it was indeed a team performance which kept us unbeaten.
We are still in second with a game in hand over Plymouth but the gap is now seventeen points. It is too big a gap for the best of clubs to bridge and we will still be looking to finish in second place.
Four games next month as we will look to continue our form. Not any particularly challenging games but we will take them all seriously, never-the-less. With hope in our hearts and glory in our minds, we will march on singing a soldier's song!
