It's all about how we respond after two defeats in a week, says Greenwich Borough player-manager Gary Alexander

Tuesday 18th October 2016

GREENWICH BOROUGH player-manager Gary Alexander says he is looking for a response from his players after suffering back-to-back defeats for only the second time since promotion.

The newly-promoted club were knocked out of The Buildbase FA Trophy to their Kent rivals VCD Athletic in a replay, before they went to Walton Casuals at the weekend and lost again to the side that ended their interest in The FA Cup.

Greenwich Borough are second-place in the Ryman League Division One South table, having collected nine wins, one draw and three defeats.  They are a couple of points behind leaders Dorking Wanderers, who went down to a shock 2-1 home defeat to struggling Chatham Town at the weekend.

Alexander, who has slotted in a number of positions on the pitch this season, takes his side to Horsham tonight.

The Hornets sit in fourteenth-place in the table with a playing record of four wins, three draws and six defeats in the league this season and are unbeaten in three games.

Alexander said: “We’ve got a big week coming up after two defeats in a week, it’s all about how we respond.  Going out of The FA Trophy to VCD was obviously disappointing and I don’t want to lose any football match but that has to be expected.

“Then we got back to league action against Walton Casuals where we suffered our first defeat in 10 league games, a run my lads should be proud of and take great confidence.

“With Horsham and Three Bridges coming up, we’ll be looking to respond.  I’ll have to see who’s available, who’s not. We hope to bounce back with some positive performances and results.”
