Frustration for King’s gallant men

DISAPPOINTED: Brendon King

DISAPPOINTED: Brendon King

BRENDON King hailed his side’s character last night but also admitted he was disappointed that they failed to claim all three points.

The Weymouth boss watched his side come from behind twice in the 3-3 draw with Gosport Borough but it still did little to ease his frustration.

Speaking to Echosport afterwards, King said: “We have got a point out of it but we are disappointed.

“Our first-half performance was poor but after a few words at the break we came out and gave it everything.

“We scored two good goals to go 2-1 up before they then hit back with a worldy which we could do nothing about.

“Their third was also another good finish and at that point we could have easily hung our heads.

“However, it showed the character of this team that we immediately went on the attack and got back level with Mark Ford once again showing his predatory instincts after coming off the bench.

“The swirling wind made it difficult out there and I was pleased with the way we kept battling but we also know we can do better.”

Disruptions at the back are certainly not helping the Terras at present with Kyle Critchell missing the game with a groin problem and his replacement Alex Jeannin having to come off with a hamstring injury.

With Sam Poole and Ashley Wells also sidelined, King admits his defensive options are limited.

He added: “Barry McConnell had to go into the centre when Alex came off and I thought he did well but the fact we are struggling to get a settled back four out there is far from ideal.

“However, having said that, it is what it is and the last thing we can afford to do is feel sorry for ourselves.”

The Terras remain 17th in the Evo-Stik Southern Premier Division, having won just one of their first nine games.

They have also now played one more match than the five teams below them and sit just one point above the drop-zone.
