City Alerts - Lee's view

LEE'S VIEW on Billericay   2   Truro City   1

"I was really pleased with the way the boys performed and the result was desperately disappointing.  We deserved at least a point and really should have won; we created so many excellent chances.  It was a cagy game to start with, but we grew in confidence and did ever so well in such stifling conditions.  It was really hot, with the temperature well into the 80s, and we were sweating just watching it from the shade.

"We changed our shape for the second half to make it a bit more positive.  Again, we dominated the game but could not take our chances.  Keiffer Moore could have had a hat-trick.  He and Les Afful were outstanding up front.  I felt really sorry for the boys.  To walk away with nothing from that game was a travesty of justice.

"To make matters even worse, Ben Adlesbury's injury came at just the wrong time, in the closing minutes.  It took away our momentum.  There was a break of around five minutes and then of course Billericay went and scored at the death." 

TEAM NEWS for tomorrow's first home League match of the new season, 7.45 pm, v Havant & Waterlooville.    Late fitness checks on ANDY WATKINS (groin) and STEWART YETTON (hamstring), but hopeful that Watkins at least will be okay to play. 

LEE HODGES suspended.  BEN ADLESBURY (knee) expected out for at least two weeks.  Lee:  "We all feared ligaments at first, but he was walking around after the match and had good movement, which was great.  We are just hoping it will settle down now and possibly be back after two weeks."
