PHOTO GALLERY - ‘Sloppiness’ costs Town

Sleaford Town have got to stop handing their opponents the initiative if they are to succeed in the UCL Premier Division.

This is the message from assistant manager Terry Fleming following a home defeat to Huntingdon Town on Saturday.

Sleaford found themselves 2-0 down at Eslaforde Park after giving away two ‘sloppy goals’, Fleming said.

They would ultimately pull one back - and hit the woodwork - before the close of play.

Fleming said: “We have, first of all, got to stop conceding goals and giving teams something to hold onto.”

Town, at 16th in the table, currently find themselves part way through a run of home ties.

They hosted Boston Town yesterday (Tuesday) and next face Northampton Sileby Rangers at home on Saturday.

The run follows four consecutive away ties in December, which nonetheless brought them two hefty wins - 5-3 and 4-0.

Speaking on Monday, Fleming said: “Now we have got these home games coming up, this is where we can take a firm grip on what we are trying to do and hopefully pick up a lot more points than we have done in the past. Hopefully, we can start picking up points from tomorrow.”
