City Alerts - Lee's view on the Eastbourne game

LEE'S VIEW on Truro City  0  Eastbourne Borough  2 

"There's not a lot you can say about a performance like that, except maybe it was just the culmination of everything - maybe it was the performance that was waiting to happen, sooner or later, after so many battles and so few options.  The boys looked dead on their feet;  there was no life in us at all.  I've asked for minor miracles from them, week in and week out and maybe this was the day it all caught up with them.

"There's no disguising the fact that we're going through a very sticky patch and it was the worst possible start to a massive month for us, when we simply have to start picking up points again.  We will soldier on.  We will pick up the pieces at training this week.  We have to get back to basics."

"I may gamble and change a few things - play players in different positions to try and freshen things up a bit.  What we're doing at the moment just isn't working.  One thing is certain - the boys will not want to finish the season the way we are now."

"My two centre halves have performed wonders all season, but each made a mistake that led to a goal on Saturday.  But it wasn't just them.  We just never made it into top gear.  We looked okay in the first 20 minutes or so, but then all of a sudden it all started to go wrong and Eastbourne took over.  Their manager told me afterwards he thought we are too good to go down, but we've certainly got a struggle on our hands right now."

UPCOMING FIXTURES (all League and all Sat 3 pm kick-off except where stated) March 10, Hampton & Richmond away;  Tuesday March 13, Boreham Wood home, 7.45 pm;  March 17, Tonbridge Angels away;  Tuesday, March 20, Basingstoke away, 7.45 pm;  March 24, Thurrock home;  March 31, Staines Town away.
