'Tough afternoon' 'Tough afternoon'

Edgley looking to bring in two more players

Gary Edgley has praised the efforts of his players despite losing 5-0 at home to Eynesbury Rovers. 

The defeat saw the Poachers slump to bottom of the United Counties League table.

Edgely said: "It was another tough afternoon for my lads against another very good UCL team.

"As a manager I have to try and take positives from the match, and I can. Our first half performance - apart from conceding two very soft goals - was very good and we more than matched Eynesbury. We created four very, very good chances but didn’t take any, which unfortunately has become a pattern for us over the last few games.

"I felt the second half was like a training game which Eynesbury completely controlled with us never looking like getting back in the game. 

"But like I said, I can take positives from this match. Our fitness levels were a lot better, I felt our shape was good and we created good clear-cut chances. If we hadn’t, I would be worried."

Town have no fixture next week and Edgley is looking forward to making the most of the break.

"I’m glad to get a break now for two weeks, allowing me more time with the players on the training ground also giving me more time to get another couple of players in. 

"I think an enormous amount of credit needs to go to my players as well who are still giving me everything on and off the pitch through a tough period for the club."
