Chelmsford City manager Rod Stringer says his players won’t dwell on late heartache on Tuesday night.
The Clarets were close to extending their lead at the top of the Vanarama National League South in midweek but Hampton had other ideas.
The 1-1 draw in the end wasn’t the worst result as none of the other teams near the top picked up three points.
Saturday sees the side play at home to Weston super Mare and Stringer has backed his team to undo the damage of that late leveller at the Beveree.

“Of course we are disappointed we couldn’t see the game out,” the manager said. “But when you reflect on it, maybe we didn’t do quite enough. It’s never easy letting in a late goal which costs you points but we’ll just get on with it.
“We look at all the new players we have at the club and the changes we have been forced to make and we think we’ve had a good start. We’re top of the league and I don’t think we’ve played to our full potential yet.
“We’ve got some big games coming up now and we need to re-focus and look to get back to winning ways.
“The Weston match will be another challenge. We need to put in a performance.”
