DROITWICH Spa manager Tom Goss says he is far from worried despite seeing his side fall to defeat in their first three games of the Midland Combination Division One season.
Late goals saw Spa beaten in their first two games as they fell to a 2-1 home defeat against Aston and a 4-3 reverse at Feckenham before they were beaten 2-0 at home against Greenhill on Saturday.
Heading into tomorrow’s home clash against early pacesetters Cadbury Athletic, Goss believes he has seen plenty of encouraging signs from his squad so far.
“It is pretty galling not to have any points on the board so far because I think our performances have more than merited something,” he said.
“Against Aston we lost to the last kick of the game and we also conceded late on against a very good Feckenham side having fought back brilliantly from 3-1 down.
“Of course I am not happy to be sitting on zero points, but, the only thing we can control is our performances and I think they have been encouraging so far. Our display against Aston was possibly the best performance I have seen one of my sides produce.
“We have got some proper footballers at this club and whilst there are still areas I know we need to improve on, I think the foundations are there to see we can become a good side.”
Tomorrow’s opponents have won all three games they have played so far and Goss is expecting them to provide a tough test.
“It is a very harsh league we are in with some very good sides who punish you when you make mistakes.
“Cadbury will be no different, they are effectively a Premier Division side and are really going to challenge us but it will be good to see how we cope with that challenge and hopefully we can put some points on the board.”
