Falmouth Town boss Alan Carey vows to strengthen team following fifth defeat
Town scored three goals in the match, but defensive errors cost as they slumped to a loss which leaves them in the bottom five of the Carlsberg South West Peninsula League premier division.
“We were very, very poor.” said Carey. “I was extremely disappointed with the performance and the goals we gave away. We shouldn’t have lost the game. We have scored three goals away from home and that should be enough to win the match.
“It was the manner in which we gave the goals away. It was schoolboy errors and that shouldn’t be happening with the senior players we have got at the club.”
Falmouth Town had been aiming for a midtable finish in the premier division this season, but have been severely hit by injuries this campaign. Star striker Matt Drummond suffered an ankle break in Falmouth’s opening game of the season when they played Bodmin in the Charity Bowl.
Strike partner Rob Wearne has also been ruled out for a few months after he suffered a fractured skull in a recent match with Elburton Villa.
Carey says the injuries have left the club very short. They travelled to Devon on Saturday with nine regular first team players out.
“I have never known a season like it in terms of injuries,” said Carey. “The squad is light at the moment, there is no doubt about that. We are going to need to strengthen and changes will have to be made.
“We need a target man to hold the ball up, but we also need to strengthen in midfield and at the back. Those are the three areas I will be looking at, so we are going to have to bring in three or four players. I am hoping to get that sorted in the next couple of weeks.”
