Gary Alexander calls for more consistency from his Greenwich Borough side, while Ray Turner wants his Faversham Town side to relax and cause an upset

Friday 08th December 2017

GREENWICH BOROUGH boss Gary Alexander calls for consistency from his players going into tomorrow’s trip to Faversham Town.

The Borough have drawn their last four games in all competitions and have slipped down to fifth-place in the Bostik South table with 38 points on the board.

Lewes have climbed to the summit with 45 points from 20 games, followed by Carshalton Athletic with 42 points from 22 games.

“It’s been a real indifferent few weeks where at times we have been very good and at others not so good,” admitted Alexander, who saw his side lose 5-3 on penalties to holders Cray Valley in the London Senior Cup (Sponsored by Coventry Scaffolding) after being held to a 1-1 draw in midweek.

“We’ve have had ourselves in winning positions and a lack of concentration has cost us and individual errors are being punished at the moment.

“Consistency is something we as a team need to improve going into the second half of the season. It’s something we have spoken about and now we have somewhere to train we can start to work on little bits what might help us during the second half of the season, but 24 games to go we’re in the pack   

“This year everybody beats everybody so if we can up our consistency and be more ruthless hopefully we can pick up more points in the second half of season and put ourselves in with a chance.”

Faversham Town climbed up four places into sixteenth-place in the table with 27 points on the board from 22 games after coming away from Thamesmead Town with a 3-2 win at Princes Park on Wednesday night.

The introduction of super-sub Luke Griffiths, 19, had the desired effect as he scored two late goals to win the game for the Lilywhites.

“Ordinarily we’ll be up against it and we probably still are.  You make them favourites, they’re one of the favourites for promotion in 2018, they’ve got a terrific squad” said boss Ray Turner.

“I know when you start going on runs in this league sometimes things start going your way when they didn’t before so I think the boys will take good heart and it’s a game where we can relax a little bit.

“We’ve moved away from that pressure area a little bit at the bottom end of the table so let’s hope the boys can relax and play a bit better and we can cause them a little bit of an upset on Saturday.”
