We are going through a bad patch, admits Sheppey United boss Kevin Hake

Friday 31st October 2014
SHEPPEY UNITED Kevin Hake admits his side are going through a bad patch.

The Ites claimed a 2-1 win away to basement side Kent Football United last weekend and sit in fourth-place in the Pain & Glory Sports Kent Invicta League table with 24 points from 11 games, three points adrift of leaders Hollands & Blair.

Hollands & Blair switched on their new floodlights at five o’clock last night and look to be using them for the first time soon.

A club statement said: “The six pylons require some formatting next week before they can be used officially so the home league game against Bridon Ropes on November 15 could see them in use for the first time.”

Meanwhile, reflecting on Sheppey’s win over Sam MacNeil’s side, Hake said: “Our game last week just goes to show that despite the difference in league position there are no easy games as every team demonstrates a great desire to win.

“Full credit to Kent Football Untied and with performances like that I fully expect that Sam will guide them out of the temporary predicament that they currently find themselves in.

“We are going through a bad patch for a while now and we will be looking to put that right against Gravesham Borough to put on a show for our supporters on Saturday.”

Gravesham Borough arrive on the island sitting in the top eight with four wins and three draws from their eleven league outings.
