It’s down to the squad we have to show they want to be part of Ashford going forward and that will mean putting in some good performances and ultimately winning football matches, says Gary Alexander
ASHFORD UNITED assistant manager Gary Alexander says players must start winning football matches if they are to remain at the club next season.
Ashford United are in the bottom three in the Bostik South Division table with 28 points (winning seven league games) and have five games of an forgettable season left to play.
They host fellow strugglers Faversham Town on Easter Monday and Ray Turner’s side are only three places higher and arrive at Homelands with 41 points in the bag from their 40 league games.
Ashford’s trip to second-from-bottom Molesey on Saturday was postponed owing to a waterlogged pitch, while Faversham lost 2-1 at home to now second in the table Carshalton Athletic, despite taking the lead through Renford Tenyue.
“We probably deserved something from Faversham and it will be another good test,” said Alexander.
“Ray Turner’s teams are always competitive and being a local derby I’m sure it will be all of that, fingers crossed we get a big crowd. It’s a family day so hopefully the fans will turn up and get behind the boys.
“With six games to go, the fans have been fantastic for my short spell at the club and my aim is to try and get as many results as possible and give them something to look forward to as we build to improve so new faces will arrive.
“It’s down to the squad we have to show they want to be part of Ashford going forward and that will mean putting in some good performances and ultimately winning football matches.”
