We battered them but just could not score.

Andover were a young, enthusiastic side who worked incredibly hard, although the stats say they did not have one effort on goal.

We played ever so well – the best we have played for two months – and yet we got little out of it.

We have played well against Bridgwater, not so well at Gosport and exceptionally well against Andove, although all we have to show is two points out of the last nine.

We just lacked a cutting edge and we need to score.

There was one kicked off the line and probably two very good chances we should have finished but the players are just snatching a bit at their chances.

There were some changes to the line-up to give us some pace at the back and it seemed to work.

Zak Westlake came in and was the boy we saw last season. He has clearly taken some time to get over his injury at the start of the season but he played very, very well at Andover.

Scott Mason also came in and did well. With Zak, Chris Thompson and, to a lesser extent, ‘Mace’ we had plenty of pace at the back.

If I played in that team and was dropped for the next game I would be very disappointed so my gut feeling is that we will go with the same XI against league leaders Windsor on Saturday.

Windsor were beaten by Bridgwater last week and we have taken four points out of six from Bridgwater this season, so we are not going there as cannon fodder.

There is better news to report on Scott Griffin, too. He has had plenty of physio since his nasty injury in the Gosport game and has started doing some straight running. With no midweek game next week, he could even be involved the following Saturday.
