Team lacks support, says Bridgwater Town boss Kevin Milsom
BRIDGWATER Town were left disappointed after they suffered a 4-1 defeat to North Leigh at Fairfax Park last night (March 5).
Town were 3-0 down at half-time which soon became 4-0 in the second half before Zayne Simpson’s superb strike from a free-kick gave the Bridgwater fans something to cheer about.
Joint boss Kevin Milsom said fans need to get behind the team.
He added: “The decision making was all round the twist and wrong and as a team we need to take more responsibility.
“But spectators need to get behind us rather than criticise us - they have a knock on effect to the team.”
The team have only played four times since January 5 and in that time they have dropped from being play-off hopefuls to hovering above the relegation places.
But Milsom said he wants to see support not just from the fans but also the club officials too.
He said: “What looked like a promising season where we were has now become hard work but it is up to us to get something out of it.
“You can’t make a silk purse out of a sows ear and the club couldn’t dream of having a better squad with the budget we have – they are good Southern League players.
“If you don’t have the budget then you have to take what you have got and as soon as people realise that is where we are and that is the only things we can work with.”
What do you think of the team's run since the New Year? Can they compete for the play-offs again? Let us know.
