THE defeat to lowly Thurrock further erased the memories of the strong displays against Eastleigh and Bishop's Stortford.
City manager Steve Castle has now seen his side go three matches without a win and without a goal. He was shocked by the lack of goal threat against Thurrock. He said: "Everyone came here, myself included, expecting a comprehensive victory but we cannot put the ball in the back of the net. There was not enough quality in the final third. We were trying to walk the ball in, looking for the perfect goal and it is not happening at the moment for us.
"I am looking for an ugly goal I am not looking for a perfect goal. Everyone is quite happy with a ball that goes in the net however it goes in.
"It was quite a positive half time teamtalk. We came out and, as I said, any chances that we had we tried to walk the thing in. Our set plays went to pot with people not going into positions that they had been told to go in. We just didn't look like we were going to score."
