WE HAD two if not three good chances before they even had their first shot which produced a goal.

Although we had three against two in midfield we were not getting any joy. In fact, our shape needing sorting out as we were at sixes and sevens.

Chris Williams was too deep, protecting the back four and Rob Dean was getting a lot of time on the ball which is not his strength. What he does best is break down teams by putting himself about.

We had to sacrifice Deano for Nick Dunn at half-time. Nick likes to be on the ball, but is not so good in the areas where Deano excels.

After we sorted ourselves out, I thought we brushed them aside and I was surprised how quickly they deteriorated when we got on top.

Nick got a good goal and Tom Etheridge showed what an extraordinary weapon his long throw is going to be this season when setting up the third goal for Neil Griffiths.

Earlier, he had nearly thrown one straight into the goal at the back post!

Tom’s throw will be very useful to us, but we have to mix it up as well.

I am pretty happy about our start to the season, although we are by no means fluent and energetic enough yet.

Lee Stevens is back from the States and could be involved in both the Bridgwater game on Tuesday night and the FA Cup tie with Thatcham Town on Saturday.

Andy Minturn, unfortunately, is still having trouble shaking off his injury.
