The Blueboys remain second from bottom of the SSML Premier Division having failed to win in any of their last 12 league games.

They started well enough at the Recreation Ground, pushing the hosts back but once they went behind there was only ever going to be one winner.

"I cannot take anything positive from that if I'm honest," said Charlery. "It was the Christmas blues and we didn't deserve anything even if we started off bright and in good areas.

"I changed the formation slightly and we had a couple of half-chances but they defended well.

"We'll go back to the drawing board but this isn't our fight. Our fight is with the teams around us.

"Arlesey Town at home on Saturday is our fight and we'll prepare for that.

"And hopefully we can carry the start of this game across the whole 90 minutes then."
