FAIRFORD TOWN boss Jody Bevan insists his side have no complaints as they spurned the chance to go top of the early-season Hellenic Premier Division table.

Fairford Town fell to a 2-1 defeat at home to Easington Sports, with all the goals coming in the first half. Charlie Bailey was on target for the hosts.

"Obviously bitterly disappointed that we couldn't win the game that would have put us top of the table," said Bevan.

"Easington surprised us by playing four up front from the off and we just didn't get to grips with it. As soon as they lost the ball they get eleven men behind the ball and were very effective in frustrating us.

"Unfortunately we had one of those days, where for some reason everything looked laboured and we couldn't do anything with any fluency and we could have no complaints in the end.

"We should have had a penalty right at the end, but we didn't do enough in front of goal to break them down. It's a setback but I hope it spurs us on.

"Despite the good start we've had I don't think we have been playing particularly well since the Hanwell game.

"We are not a million miles away and we will use this week to take a bit of a breather, take stock and try and find a bit of form both individually and collectively."

Fairford welcome Bourton Rovers in the Floodlight Cup tonight, 7.45pm. On Saturday, Town entertain Shortwood United in the FA Vase, 3pm.
