they'd seemed much more up for it today than Witton - possibly because of the lack of atmosphere behind the goal? Last year, the home support was worth a goal in several tight games, today nobody (with a few honourable exceptions)seemed that bothered, both on and off the pitch.
How can you blame that on how Witton played?! Last season the atmosphere at home was great towards the end of the season because we were steam-rollering teams and scoring goals, this in turn gets the fans going. Away from home it's the fans job to get behind the team, but at home the crowd needs the team to give it a lift. That didn't happen enough yesterday. Anyone who doesn't feel there is enough noise behind goal is quite welcome to make some.

Fair point, Robbo - I try, but I'm afraid my days in the Central Ground Choir are long behind me!! I know what you mean about the team needing to turn it on at home to lift the crowd, but sometimes a bit of pre-emptive encouragement can make a difference. In the home game against Leek last year we were playing crap, then the fans really got some noise going, lifted the team, we took the lead .... unfortunately, everyone then went back to sleep, but that's not the point! Just a thought ....
I was absolutely gutted - nothing else to say really except good luck to Prescot and to the supporters behind the goal - there are times when the team really needs you and Saturday was one of those days!
Gutted! When heard about the result i couldnt believe it! but never mind there is always the trophy! and lets be honest the prize money in that isnt too bad either for a club like us! Anyway, concentration on the league and lets consolidate our position! Come on Witton!
Had a feeling this might happen before the game its always harder to play a team whom your expected to beat handsomely. Full marks to Prescot they deserved it you can't argue with the effort they put in even though the winning goal was a little lucky. I feel several of our players did not really turn up on Saturday and I hope we get this game out of our system very quickly and get up for it against Ilkeston on Sayturday,
