Eastbourne Town boss Danny Bloor admitted the recent hectic schedule has caught up with his side after they suffered their third straight defeat.
Town have played midweek and Saturday’s for the whole of October, and with nine players injured, the squad has been stretched to the limit.
“It has taken it’s toll there is no doubt about that.
“We are looking forward to getting all our squad available once again and then we go again.
“The Maidstone game took a lot out of us both physically and mentally and against Corinthian Casuals and in the first half against Leatherhead, we were feeling a bit sorry for ourselves.
“We told them a few home truths at half time (against Leatherhead) and we got back to the performance levels of where we need to be.”
Bloor added, “We have a couple of nice home fixtures coming up now starting with Sittingbourne and then Worthing.
“We need to get back firing on all cylinders and give ourselves the best possible chance of getting good results.”
