Gary McCann looked back at Saturday's defeat against Billericay saying, "Of course it was disappointing to lose, but to be honest, they played the conditions better than we did. The conditions were very trying to say the least and it didn't make for a good game to watch.

"I cannot fault the effort, energy and commitment from my players. They are all pulling in the same direction and we are still trying to do things the right way.

"We didn't have enough periods of sustained pressure. The poor playing surface and windy conditions made things very tough. There was a spell at the start of the first half and during the second when we did have that pressure, but we did not make it count.

"The third goal was very disappointing especially as we had just pulled it back to 2-1. If we could have defended better after Tony Taggart's fine goal, we might have got something from the game as they were rattled.

"The bottom line is that their experience and know-how was more effective that our youth and they used this to get the points.

"We need to bring in some older, wiser heads and I will be making a couple of signings who will bring that level of experience to the club."
