STRATFORD Town manager Carl Adams is calling for more consistency from his players who have suffered successive home defeats in their last two Southern League Division One South & West matches.
Last Saturday’s 2-1 reverse at home to Bridgwater Town came seven days after Town lost to a stoppage-time goal in a 1-0 defeat against high-flying Merthyr Town.
This Saturday sees Adams take his mid-table side on their travels to Shortwood United as they begin a testing festive fortnight of fixtures.
“We are a young team and still finding our feet at this level,” said Adams. “We were poor last week there’s no getting away from that, but we are up against teams who are experienced in this division.
“What disappointed me the most is that we went from producing probably our best performance of the season against Merthyr to one of our worst against Bridgwater. We have to try and find some consistency because we need to keep on picking up points.”
Adams knows all too well the threat that Shortwood will pose on Saturday. The Nailsworth club were impressive 4-0 winners against Stratford back at the start of the season in August.
Since then, they have had a great FA Cup run which only came to an end at the 1st Round Proper in a televised game against Port Vale, who ran out 4-0 winners in front of a record 1,247 spectators at Meadowbank.
