Lowestoft Town have ‘turned the corner’

Lowestoft Town joint boss Ady Gallagher believes the Blues are over their blip in form despite seeing his side once again pegged back in the title race against East Thurrock United on Tuesday night.

The Trawlerboys were frustrated in their efforts to keep up the pressure on rivals Billericay and AFC Hornchurch at Crown Meadow against the Rocks but Gallagher is adamant the club are over their poor run after much improved displays against Aveley and Metropolitan Police.

'I'm happy generally that we've got through our little spell,' said Gallagher, whose side face a tough trip to Lewes this weekend (kick-off 3pm).

'We've had a couple of wins with two clean sheets – I don't think we should beat ourselves up too much about our performance (against East Thurrock).

'After Saturday's exertions it would have been great to get another win tonight but we showed a lot of resilience to come from behind and get a point.

'Over the two games against Met Police and East Thurrock I think we probably would have said that four points would be great.

'It's just a little bit frustrating that after getting three points on Saturday that we couldn't back it up.'
