Brook Street crashed to a 4-2 home defeat against Vines Cross in front of a record New Home Park crowd of over 55,000 this afternoon, the loss leaving us in sixth position in the division just a point off bottom.

And at the post-match press conference Marcus admitted that his shot-shy players are going to have to pick up their game if they are not to be drawn into the relegation fight.

“We let a lot of people down today. We cannot afford to waste chances that fall to us as we all know how tight this league is”.

He went on, “We’ve not started well and we face another very tough match next weekend. Every point is a prisoner and we’ve got to ensure we convert more of the chances we create otherwise we could find ourselves in a dogfight”.

“Vines had us on the back foot throughout the game, even when we went ahead, and we simply never got to grips with them. That’s not good enough in my book”.

The coach then threw down the gauntlet to the fringe players saying, “I need to freshen things up, and it’s up to the reserves to stake their claim for a place in the first team”.
