Lowestoft looking to put away defeats behind them

Goalkeeper Andy Reynolds believes sticking to what they know will see Lowestoft Town rediscover their previous imperious form.

The Trawlerboys welcome fourth place Kingstonian to Crown Meadow off the back of consecutive defeats in London at Tooting and Mitcham, and Ryman Premier Division leaders Sutton United – a shock to the system given Town had only lost twice in the league before then and were unbeaten since early September. But Reynolds hopes a show of togetherness at home tonight (7.45pm) can get Town's promotion challenge back on track.

'I think the one thing with this squad is, regardless of results, it's always been a club and a side that sticks together,' he said. 'There is no one who is going to push ourselves more than us within the management team and players.

'We know what is expected of us. We train hard and work hard, and some of us are holding down jobs as well. We try to take the pressure off ourselves, get together, and training nights are always good fun and you just keep going on.'

With Saturday's only absentee – striker Lee McGlone – close to being available, tonight could be the first time Lowestoft's management team has a full squad to choose from as they face a side two points and two places above them in the table.

Kingstonian, who could only draw at basement side Aveley on Saturday, are in indifferent form themselves, having won just twice in seven outings.

Reynolds added: 'There are quite a few lads at the minute whose form and performances have been fine. I think it's just a case of going through a spell as a side where we're not getting results – but keep doing the same things that have worked for us for the last three years.

'This is probably the first time in those three years that we've faltered a little bit. I don't think anyone can jump on and say we're struggling. We're the same team doing the same thing, and at the minute it's just difficult for us.'
