Yeovil stopped a run of three defeats in a row to get a point at Aldershot. Ian was at the EBB stadium in the sunshine…

A draw was tough to take. This was the epitome of a six-pointer and one where in hindsight we could have really done with three points. York, Halifax, Gateshead and Torquay all got wins with Gary Johnson’s side leapfrogging Yeovil after their third win in a row. We’re now in 22nd, five points behind Aldershot in 19th. In truth, I didn’t have a clear enough view for our penalty appeal, but many think it should have been. Aldershot had a golden opportunity to grab victory from the spot and they didn’t. Maybe lady luck is on our side for the run in…

We improved from Tuesday. The bar was low right? But we looked more like a side yesterday. Defensively we looked okay, although giving the tallest man on the pitch a free header in the box was less than ideal. In midfield were still trying to find a combination that clicks, is fit enough to last and can create chances. I wouldn’t describe us at outstanding, but from the very low standards on Tuesday, we’ve pulled out a performance and arrested the slide.

Everything good came from Matt Worthington. As important as Staunton is at the back of the pitch, Worthington is at the front. He’s a leader on that pitch, setting an example to all his teammates. He assists the equaliser, is always an option for a team mate and was the legs getting in behind the Aldershot defence on plenty of occasions. He’s really stood out for me this season and when we’ve not had him in the side, we’ve missed him.

We came out in our numbers. 529 Glovers made the trip on Good Friday to try and roar the team to victory. It was an amazing effort after the dismal showing on Tuesday and it shows, even when times are tough, the amazing support this club has. SU Glovers were on the terrace in the thick of it and will have felt that support and hopefully have a plan to harness that energy when they complete this protracted takeover. 

Admittedly I’m struggling with this one, but we have to try and believe. There are still games to go, and it’s not over yet. We could still do it. Aldershot weren’t much of a side. If we can build on this point and get something from Dorking, confidence can grow and we may do something. Its the National League after all. If Elon Musk can crash twitter once and for all we may actually shut down all this ridiculous noise that is not helpful in a fight for survival. On social media many have gone from ‘supporting the team, not the regime’ to supporting the not-yet regime rather than the team.

What regime? Oh you mean SU Glovers. Yes nice people but for now they’re just fans aren’t they? The longer the ownership issue goes on the more worried fans get.
