Bulls still believing

JERSEY BULLS manager Gary Freeman has said there is still a long way to go in the season and he is expecting a ‘few more twists and turns’.

Bulls dropped a valuable two points on Tuesday evening after being held to a 0-0 draw at Tadley Calleva. Meanwhile, promotion rivals Raynes Park Vale and Badshot Lea both had convincing wins to extend their lead over Gary Freeman’s team to ten and seven points respectively and do not look like dropping points any time soon.

However, Freeman was quick to point out that there is still nearly half the season to play over the next month and a half, starting with Saturday’s match hosting AFC Croydon Athletic at their Springfield home.

‘At the minute, we’ve just got to forget about the league table and play the games of football and enjoy the games of football. I think we’ve got to say: ‘’Those two teams are fine, let them go and we’ll see what happens,”’ said Freeman.

‘I think there is going to be a few twists and turns yet, but if those two teams are good enough to win every game, fair play to them, they’ll win the league but I think there’s a bit to go yet.

‘Winning games is what we want to be doing but I think we can’t get fixated on the table at the minute. We need to focus on ourselves and forget about the others,’ he continued.

‘If we’re not good enough, we’re not good enough. We need to make sure that we’re doing the right things and winning our games of football, playing football the way we want to play football and we enjoy our football and hopefully that will take us where we want to be.’

Freeman said he was pleased with the way his team played in the first half against Tadley but believed they squandered good opportunities before it all became a little disjointed in the second half.

‘We asked the players to play at a tempo and I thought we had that. We were creating chances but second half we did seem to lose our way and the tempo dropped,’ he added.

‘I don’t even think we got a shot on goal, which was disappointing.

‘To be fair, Tadley worked hard and they’ve got a decent home record.

‘We’ve got to make sure we’re ready to go again tomorrow.

‘We want to do better at playing through the final thirds and get back to playing how we want to play and get back to winning games.’

Miguel Carvalho is still unavailable after a week spent training with Wolverhampton Wanderers, while Jay Giles is an injury doubt.
