DESPITE failing to score in their last four matches, Wellington’s football manager Tim Legg has called for his players - and supporters - to remain ‘patient’.

He said this week: “It’s still a case of we know what we need to improve on and we’re working hard to try and improve in this area.

“With a young side we have to be patient as they show at times they can compete with the top teams. We will continually look to improve and the players have bought into this.”

In their latest match last Saturday, Wellington lost 3-0 at home title-chasing Exmouth Town in the Premier Division of the Toolstation League, and Legg added: “It was a score that didn’t reflect the game. But credit has to go to Exmouth with how they play to their strengths.

“We couldn’t break down a very stubborn Exmouth defence and they scored with a corner and two errors from us gifting Levi Landricombe two easy opportunities to score.”

Wellington will be looking to end their disappointing spell when they play away to Millbrook, one place above then in 13th spot, tomorrow. Both sides have played the same number of games but there is a ten point gap between them. Millbrook drew 1-1 away to Shepton Mallet last time out.

Wellington Reserves, who are still lying third in Division One of the Devon and Exeter League despite having their top of the table game at Crediton called off because of the bad weather, are home to Sandford who are making a late bid for the title. Sandford are only two points behind Wellington with two games in hand.

The new leaders of the first division are Alphington who won 2-1 at home to Hatherleigh Town last weekend to open up a two-point lead at the top of the table.

Wellington A hope to end a four-week break from football with a match tonight (Fri) - against Stogursey at the Bridgwater Academy in the West Somerset Rose Bowl - a competition for first round losers in the Taunton Saturday League KO Cup (8p.m.).
