After a pulsating, and at points frustrating, afternoon at Bearsted which saw the Fish walk away with a point from a six goal thriller, Gary Abbott felt there were a number of positives to be taken from the performance.
On the setup of the Fisher side, Abbo felt that there were clear signs of the style of play he is striving for coming together – “There were times in the game that you could see the passing and movement from the boys especially in the second half. That is the way we will be setting out to play, I’ve always said it will take time to gel and hopefully sooner rather than later.”
The first two goals for Fisher came from new boy Trey Williams, who Gary sees a bright future for in black and white. “Trey Williams, all I can say is I couldn’t have asked anymore from him. His movement and link up play was outstanding and he took his two goals well and could have scored more, but I’m sure he will scored 20/25 goal if he stays injury free.”
The third goal for the Fish came from Player/First Team Coach Isa Hussain, who ripped in a glorious long distance free kick that was recognised as a beauty from all watching, including the boss – “I’m sure that free kick will be up there at the end of the season as one of the goals of the season, and I’m sure he will pop up with a couple more free kicks like that one.”
Whilst there was much to celebrate going forwards, Abbo was less glowing about the performance at the back as three goals were shipped against a Bearsted side who haven’t been free scoring so far this term. “I’m really disappointed in the 3 goals we give away, when you keep telling the back four to do something and they don’t do it that is so annoying, especially when there third goal went in, if they done what I said we would have won the game, which is why I was so annoyed at the final whistle.”
Gary was also disappointed by the red card shown to Veejay Miller – “I think the first yellow card was harsh, he did shout out about a decision but not directed at the linesman, I’m sure he has heard worst things than that and not told the referee; the second yellow was for pulling a shirt was a definite yellow card, but I’m disappointed in Veejay because the player was by the corner flag so no need to foul him.”
“Overall I’m happy with our start, unbeaten with a new team, that breeds confidence, and we all look forward to our next game at home to Corinthians which will be another tough game, then a big game away at Beckenham on Monday.”
