Manager Graham Westley has called for a zero tolerance approach from the team now following the massive four nil loss to Colchester on Boxing Day.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, despite his anger and disappointment at the final score line, Westley said that there were positives from the game as he felt we were much improved in the second half.

‘If you look at the game and take the goals out of it then we were probably the dominant side. What I didn’t like this afternoon was the reaction I saw from the team to the two goals that we conceded as a result of Daisy’s error.’

Westley goes on to say that Daisy has been a fantastic servant to this club but ‘that doesn’t give him the right to make mistakes and drop standards in terms of the basics of his job, but at the same time there were a lot of players who could’ve had the finger pointed at them.’

Westley adds that the first place he feels players need to look is at themselves rather than finger pointing and blaming others, because it’s a team game and when mistakes happen somebody else should’ve have been covering their colleague and helping out, and that did not happen defensively on the day.

‘The togetherness isn’t there at the level we need it at, we’ve spoken very quickly but very succinctly about what’s required. That’s zero tolerance now from me now. Enough is enough.’

The gaffer adds that at full time it was the lowest he’s probably ever felt during his time as our manager, mainly because the spirit isn’t right and that’s something he likes to pride himself and his teams on.
