The performances have been good but ultimately it’s a results business and we need to start getting some points on the board sooner rather than later, says Rochester United boss Ian Varley
ROCHESTER UNITED manager Ian Varley says his side must start picking up points to avoid beating the drop at the end of the season.
Rochester United are second-from-bottom in the Southern Counties East Football League Premier Division table, having collected one win and two draws from their 11 league outings.
Varley has lost seven of his eight games in charge of the club since switching from First Division side Holmesdale.
Varley is keen to collect points when fourth-from-bottom side Tunbridge Wells visit Rede Court Road tomorrow, especially as they are four points adrift of safety.
“After being on the road the last couple of weeks, it’ll be nice to get back at home against Tunbridge Wells,” said Varley, who saw his side lose 3-0 at Sevenoaks Town last weekend.
“Results haven’t been quite what we had hoped lately but we’ve had some good performances and those games could have quite easily gone either way.
“Last week we frustrated Sevenoaks for long periods as well as having a few chances in the first half so we’ve got to take confidence from that game going into tomorrow.
“As myself and many other people have said lately the performances have been good but ultimately it’s a results business and we need to start getting some points on the board sooner rather than later.
“One win in five league games isn’t good enough especially when we aren’t picking up any draws either so that needs to change quickly.”
