Borough not alarmed by lack of goals

The Argus: Tommy Widdrington Tommy Widdrington

Boss Tommy Widdrington insists Eastbourne Borough’s lack of goals is not a major issue.

Borough have scored fewer goals than any other side in the top half of Conference south and have found the net just four times in their last six matches, including a goalless draw at struggling Dorchester last weekend.

Their lack of potency up front has not prevented the Priory Lane outfit from mounting a sustained play-off challenge with Widdrington’s men welcoming Weston-super-Mare tomorrow only a point adrift of the top five.

Widdrington said: “If we were bottom of the league and not scoring I would have a problem with it but we’ve won more games than we’ve lost and results are what matter.

“At the end of the day it only takes one goal to win a game of football. I’d love to win four or five nil every week but the way we play suits the players we have in the dressing room.

“Like everybody I would like to see more goals as that is why we go to watch football but this is a results business and we have to make ourselves solid and difficult to beat.”

Widdrington could hand a debut to Tom Derry against tenth-placed Weston-super-Mare today after the striker missed the stalemate at Dorchester due to illness following his loan move from Gillingham.

The Borough boss also hopes to add another attacking player to his squad to help give them more of a cutting edge but insists any new addition will need to fit into the team’s system.
