'The wins will come,'says Wisbech St Mary manager Paul Hunt
Wisbech St Mary manager Paul Hunt is confident his side will soon start picking up points after a 3-0 home defeat to Diss Town this afternoon.
Hunt told the Citizen: "I thought the boys were superb in the first half and we had long periods of pressure. Their first goal on the counter attack took the wind out of our sails a little bit and we sat back a bit, but then the second half was a really open game.
"We are just not putting the ball in the net, and Diss were clinical. But overall I thought we worked really hard.
"The boys have given everything in training and bought into what I'm telling them. Their commitment is outstanding and we are starting to see that come into play with a better structure on the pitch.
"We had a couple of goalmouth scrambles in the first half today where we were not quite sharp enough to put it in and some efforts that went straight at the keeper. None of theirs were clear-cut chances but they took them well.
"But the boys are now really progressing and they are good enough to be in games. The next step is to get that first win and realise how good they can be and push on."
Next week, Saints travel to fifth placed Whittlesey Athletic, and Hunt added: "I have seen them a couple of times this season and they are a good side so it won't be an easy game, but no sides are easy in this league. But if we play like we did today in every game, we are going to start picking up points.
"Once we get a win,the boys will get the belief that they can win more games, which I know they can. We are early on in this project, with a team that has not won in over a year, but we have to keep grafting on our shape, grafting to create opportunities and grafting to score... and that will come.
"We're doing well but that last little bit of telling yourself you will die to score, die to prevent the other team from scoring, that's what needs to come next. Once we get that, I think we will turn a lot of teams over."
Hunt confirmed that Matty Harris-Hercules has left the club through travelling reasons and has joined Huntingdon Town, who are closer to where he lives.
