Sevenoaks collapse like a pack of cards

SEVENOAKS Town's assistant manager Julian Leigh wasn't a happy man after watching his side go down 4-1 to Sporting Bengal United at Greatness Park last Saturday, writes Stephen McCartney.

Although they don't have a first team fixture on Saturday, fans do get a chance to see some football action at Greatness Park, when the club's reserves - third in the Go Travel Kent League second division - entertain local rivals Beckenham Town.

The first team return to action for the visit of bottom of the table Lordswood next Tuesday.

Leigh blasted: "Again it seems that if we let in one goal our heads drop and we end up letting in three or four goals,"

"The team must learn to show character the same way we did against Maidstone United and now collapse like a pack of cards.

"We must also learn to play well against the lesser teams rather than, as it appears by our results against the so-called big sides, such as Maidstone, VCD Athletic and the away game against Herne Bay.

"That said, Sporting Bengal are a much improved side from when we last played them."
