NO KNEE JERK REACTION - BUT WE'VE GOT TO STOP GIVING AWAY SILLY GOALS SAYS NEIL

 

Neil Cugley insists that there will be no knee jerk reaction despite his side’s 12  game unbeaten run coming to an end with Saturday’s 5-3 defeat away to Dorking Wanderers.

The Invicta boss said: “We played pretty well on a difficult,  bumpy pitch which doesn’t really suit our style of football, and it was individual errors that cost us the game.

“Tim (Roberts) was at fault a couple of times, but he wasn’t the only one. He was man of the match last week and hasn’t  become a bad goalkeeper overnight. We all make mistakes at times.

“He knows he could have done better, and if we’re honest, he pulled off several outstanding saves that kept us in the game at different stages. I wouldn’t  swap him for anyone  and he’s part of our plans for next season whatever level we’re at.

“The Staines game (which Folkestone drew 4-4) was a one-off, but if you discount that, in the other 11 games of that unbeaten run we conceded less than a goal-a-game during that period.

“We all know we’ve got to stop giving away silly goals, but we’ve not changed the way we play and don’t really intend to. We’re so close to the play-offs now, and with so many teams having to play each other we may even be there. Of course we’ll be trying to get as many points as we can from the three remaining games and see where that takes us.

Invicta go to Thurrock tomorrow (Tuesday) night for a re-arranged fixture – the first game having been called off because of the snow that fell in Essex and Kent early last month.

""This is going to be an even more important game now," said Neil. "We might make a couple of changes, but haven’t quite decided just yet.”

Salvage

Mark Stimson’s Thurrock side made things difficult for Folkestone when they visited the Fullicks Stadium in early January, Invicta needing two goals from Ian Draycott (below) to salvage a 2-2 draw.

And the Essex club will be playing their final floodlit fixture at Ship Lane before the club folds at the end of this season due to popular chairman Tommy South’s health problems and his desire to spend more time with his family after many years at the helm.

Still known as the Fleet, from their days as Purfleet, Thurrock were holding title chasing Dulwich Hamlet until just over 20 minutes from time at Tooting on Saturday before attacking full back Nathan Green snatched a win for Gavin Rose’s men.

The quirks of the fixture mean that Folkestone – currently third in the table – still have to play the two sides above them, starting with Dulwich this weekend and leaders Billericay in the final Saturday of the regular season – with those two tough games hopefully followed by the promotion play-offs.

“Well be fighting till the end” said boss Cugley.

“I’m just so proud to be involved with this great bunch of players whose efforts have taken us to where we are right now.

“Of course were disappointed to lose at Dorking, but now we need everyone to get behind us even more to help us over the line.

“This is a great bunch of people as well as of good players and they fully deserve to enjoy the success we have had. Let’s face it, none of us expected we would have a season half as good as this one!”
