I'd have booed as well - Ellison

Last updated : 06 November 2009 By Bigrich.....

After another poor team performance in the goal-less draw against Aldershot, miellisonbig2dfielder Ellison admitted; "The supporters have the right to their opinion. Obviously (the booing) doesn't help the players but they pay their money and they are going to have a say on things. If you ask me, I wasn't happy with the first half. I'd have probably booed myself! It was one of those matches where you try to do things and it doesn't come off. You get frustrated with yourself."

"The fans weren't happy and to be honest the lads weren't happy with themselves either. There was a few long balls out there and the lads were getting frustrated, When we came into dressing room the lads were having a chirp at each other and the manager said, 'well I haven't told you to hoof it,' which was true."

"I think the long balls came with the way game was going. We start thinking we must get the ball forward quickly to try and score and it ends up as a long-ball game. It wasn't the prettiest game to play and both teams cancelled each other out. The main thing is that we didn't lose."

Kevin explained that the team are still confident and that the poor run of results is just coincidental; "Nothing has changed. Obviously a new manager is in but it's still the same players the previous one had. It's what we do as 11 players when we step over that white line that counts. Anyone could be in charge. As the gaffer says, he's no control over individual errors on a matchday but I think if any manager could cancel them out, they would. Individual mistakes do happen in games."

"Ronnie is experienced and his record speaks for itself. The lads have all got confidence in him. We've just got to work hard now and try and turn the corner. There's a big FA Cup tie coming up now that we need to win"

"It's going to be Wealdstone's FA Cup final and we know what we're in for. They're going to tackle us and try and bring us down to their level. They've nothing to lose and the pressure will be on us. It's another one that's not going to be pretty football. We'll be rolling our sleeves up and doing out upmost to make sure it's not a banana skin." he added.
