We were flat today: Wormull

Simon Wormull said he wasn’t even satisfied with Lewes’ first half performance in their 2-1 defeat to Thurrock today.

The Rooks played well enough against their struggling Ryman Premier opponents to go in 1-0 up at the break, before a thoroughly lack-lustre second half showing saw them deservedly beaten. The loss means Thurrock have done the double over the Rooks this season, having beaten them 2-0 at their Ship Lane venue in August.

Wormull said: “To be honest, even the first half we weren’t entirely happy with.

“It was difficult because of the conditions; the wind played havoc. And yes, we played some ok football. But for us we still felt it was a little bit flat from the start today.

“I think the first 10 minutes we looked ok, we started sharp, but from then on we were a little bit toothless in our attacks.

“When you like at what we were like against Bognor on Wednesday, we looked dangerous every time we went forward. And it just didn’t feel the same today.

“And just talking to the boys afterwards, I think a few of them felt a little bit heavy-legged with the exertions of Wednesday.

“But that’s how we are; it’s a small squad we’ve got. We just have to get through that.

“It’s just a shame. I’m disappointed someone’s got a double over us this year, which is not good for me. I don’t like that!”
