YM Must Break Losing Habit
Peter Buckland

.....of a ten-game unbeaten streak, and Peter Buckland believes once Horsham YMCA break the losing habit, they can embark on another run.

“I have said to the players that we’re too good to be mid-table where we currently are, and I still maintain the top six finish I predicted at the start of the season,” manager Buckland said.

“As a club, sometimes you need to take a step back and see that it’s not all doom and gloom. If we can make seventy points our target for the season, then we’ll see where that takes us.”

Against a St Francis Rangers side with three wins from four, YM were missing the suspended Liam Hunter, Martin Smith and Elliott Romain, and it showed, as they lacked a potent threat up front.

Neither side threatened in a quiet first period, but that changed after half time, as YM twice hit the woodwork through Leroy Hyett and Dan Sullivan, before being punished by Dan Lawrence’s header after YM lost an aerial presence when Matt Crane hobbled off, and then Liam Pears’ lob ten minutes from time.

Buckland concluded: “I’m not downbeat, because I think that we’re still in good shape. If I ever wanted to be fully stacked, it would be away to someone like St Francis Rangers. At home, I would expect to demoralise them, but away on a Sunday morning park pitch that’s not really conducive to football, I’m not so sure.

“We had four or five players that were average today, and being a bit short as well, it was just never going to happen. Thankfully we’ve got everyone back for our next game at home to Uckfield, and I know we can’t take anything for granted, but I’ll eat my hat if we can’t beat them.”
