Leandro Di Gaudio can only watch on as the Vines keeper turns his shot net-bound round the post.

Brook Street slumped to their third successive defeat yesterday with a 2-0 defeat away to Vines Cross. The loss sees the New Home Park side on their worst losing streak since they lost four on the bounce three seasons ago, and also saw them drop into the play-off zone with only four games remaining.

While it appears that they are in free-fall at the moment, the coach was not overly concerned at full-time when in a brief press-conference he said, “Although we lost again, which was a real disappointment, we didn’t play badly at all and on another day we might have taken something from the game”.

He continued, “Our performance this afternoon was markedly improved on the previous two matches, but we were up against a very strong Vines side and when your luck’s down, your luck’s down. We just need a little rub of the green and we’ll be back to winning ways”.

He finished the conference by issuing a plea to the fans.

“We need the supporters to get right behind the team for the remaining fixtures. We can turn this around, but they have a part to play too. We need them to be our twelfth man”.
