SWINDON Supermarine manager Lee Spalding said he would ‘delighted’ if his team were to achieve a result against Southern League Premier Division leaders Chesham United this evening.

Marine enter the fixture out of form having not won any of their previous three league fixtures against promotion hunters Taunton Town, Poole Town and Truro City.

Though Spalding’s men will take a great deal of comfort from the fact that they beat United at home earlier in the season.

Brad Hooper netted a fifth-minute penalty before a slice of late drama saw Marine emerge 2-1 winners.

Stuart Fleetwood’s 89th minute strike put the hosts two goals up before Chesham pulled one back with the final kick of the game.

However, a 2-1 reverse against Taunton on Saturday meant Marine enter a crunch game without just reward for their efforts, according to manager Spalding.

He said: “We did enough to get a point against Taunton, and that’s what’s frustrating.

“But now it’s about how we bounce back, and there is no bigger game than Chesham. Attacking wise, they’re a huge threat.

“I’ll be delighted if we get anything from the game.”

Despite a slight bump in Marine’s road to promotion, the club’s manager is adamant his players are not suffering a lack of confidence as a result of recent defeats.

A timely, and convincing, victory over National League South side Chippenham ensured the Webbswood Stadium outfit would not go three games without a win in all competitions while proving Spalding’s point surrounding fine margins costing his team points.

He said: “The players haven’t taken a confidence hit.

“In every game we’ve played, even on Saturday against Taunton, small margins have been the difference.

“We made three defensive mistakes against Truro that we don’t usually make, and that cost us.

“Against Poole, we weren’t great for the first 30 minutes, but we could’ve got something out of that game in the second half.

“Even on Saturday, if you take the poor penalty decision out of the game we could’ve picked up a draw – and we hit the bar too.

“That’s football, and fine margins at the moment aren’t going for us. We’re just not getting the rub of the green.”
