The disappointment felt on Saturday I think was greater given the recent strong form of our boys – there was a feeling we should be doing better knowing what we can do.
It’s not a disaster at this stage – there is still a title race to compete in and even if we do fall away from that particular race at some stage there are still the playoffs to look forward to.
With some of our recent performances also slightly lacklustre perhaps that defeat will spark us back into life with a kick in the backside of sorts.
Next Saturday’s opponents Chester are far from being at their best at the moment though did get a very credible point against Aldershot at the weekend and will be no pushovers.
Before then I’m sure all eyes will be on Maidstone on Wednesday night as they take on Macclesfield – failure to win for Macclesfield means we could overhaul them and go top on Saturday with the right combination of results.
Rather than sitting and studying who has the best and worst run in let’s just take it one game at a time and see where we end up.
Looking at each game like a cup final and playing it as such should result in predominantly positive results.
The supporters have a role to play too – a rocking atmosphere at Gander Green Lane and on the road could give the lads that little extra they need to turn draws into wins.
