But bos Dave Shearing is seeing some progress.

He said: “We are still working hard and in the last two games against Hailsham and Wick we were in the game unlike a couple of weeks ago when we had no chance scoring is. Mark Barnard had a great game in the role of sweeper but unfortunately broke his hand which will keep him out for a while we have signed a couple more and with Linton Rodgers and Charlie Shearing returning this week we are definitely moving forward if not at a slow pace.

“With all these constant changes it will be a long process but we are about half way there with regard to players.

“We don’t only need good players we need people who are prepared to dig in.

“The coaching appears to be working as we are playing something nearer to football.

“We are punching well above our weight. If we could get all our players on the pitch at the same time that would be useful.”

And Shearing joked: “On the up side we still got our 100% record!”
