Rovers boss Lakin hopes side will reap the rewards of their efforts
9:00am Saturday 14th September 2013 in Sport
STANWAY ROVERS boss Barry Lakin is convinced his side will get the rewards their efforts deserve.
The Thurlow Nunn League premier division outfit produced another spirited display - only to lose 2-1 after conceding a last-minute goal in Wednesday’s derby against BRIGHTLINGSEA REGENT.
Lakin said the defeat was a bitter pill to swallow, but feels sure his team’s luck will turn – hopefully starting in today’s match at home to newly-promoted Newmarket.
“It was very disappointing but hopefully we’ll soon start getting the rewards our efforts deserve,” said the Rovers boss.
“Again, our effort and work-rate couldn’t be faulted.
“Everything is going well apart from the results, but they will definitely improve if everyone keeps giving their all and believing.”
Brightlingsea, buoyed by their midweek victory, will hope to keep their good form going at home to Woodbridge.
WIVENHOE TOWN hit the road and face a trip to Thetford. The Dragons will be hoping to bounce back from Wednesday’s 4-1 defeat at Brantham Athletic.
In division one, form side HALSTEAD TOWN host Ipswich Wanderers. Boss Mark Benterman says his club is “buzzing”.
They have an unblemished record in the league and Benterman said: “Someone at the club told me it’s the best start the team has made in ten years, but we’re trying not to get ahead of ourselves.
“I don’t want the players getting carried away and it’s my job to keep their feet on the floor.”
BRAINTREE TOWN RESERVES host Dereham Town Reserves.
