Desire and intensity will keep us up - Widdrington

Eastbourne Borough boss Tommy Widdrington is confident his men can start stringing results together if they maintain the ‘intensity, desire and ability’ they’ve shown in the past three league games.

The Sports have produced encouraging performances in their matches at Farnborough, Eastleigh and against Dorchester and while they’ve returned with one win, one draw and one defeat, the Borough manager is certain this is the key to an improvement in league standing.

He said, “ I’ve got nothing but praise for the players. I said to them during the break for the floodlights, win lose or draw I’d have been as proud of them at the end of the 95 minutes as I was at the 87th minute.

“Jason Matthews was inspired and I don’t think we could have done a lot more than we did to win the game. I thought we were excellent.

““I can guarantee, if we keep that intensity, desire and ability, we’ll be on the right track.

“We were so much on the front foot for the whole of the second half and asking the questions nearly all the time.

“I thought the fans were excellent, they got right behind the lads, and without getting the three points, which was frustrating, the reaction of the fans and certainly of the players suggests everyone was delighted with the night’s work.”
