FOOTBALL: Webster making a point over lapses
DEVIZES Town assistant manager Justin Webster admits his side need to shore up at the back after they conceded two late goals in last weekend’s thrilling draw.
Liam Hill got on the scoresheet in the first half for Devizes before the visitors netted twice to lead at half-time. Hill struck twice more to complete his hat-trick and Neil Clark also grabbed a goal to give Mark Love’s side a 4-2 lead with around eight minutes remaining.
But after staging their own comeback, Devizes failed to deal with a late Elmore onslaught and they were denied all three points after conceding twice, with the unfortunate Kieren Chivers putting past his own keeper for the equaliser.
“We threw it away really and we felt that we should have definitely have won the game after being 4-2 up – it wasn’t really good enough,” said Webster.
“If you look at the league table, we’ve scored a lot more goals than most teams in the league but the problem we’ve had is that we’ve been letting in too many goals.
“It’s something that we’re looking to try and improve and we may look to bring some more people in to help us out there.
“We’ve also had a new coach in for the last two weeks called Shaun Wimble, who’s played at a good level and we also want to get him involved in the side but he’s a midfielder and won’t really ease our defensive worries.”
Devizes travel to Almondsbury UWE this weekend.
