MARCH Town United are still looking for a turn-around in their league form following Saturday's disappointing 2-0 home defeat to Debenham LC.The Hares are now second bottom of Ridgeons Division One, level on points with bottom side Thetford Town.Recent performances had promised that March were moving in the right direction but they were made to pay for a poor performance at the GER on Saturday.The Hares got off to a slow start and the visitors took advantage of confusion in the March defence to open the scoring on 20 minutes.The home side went close to an equaliser when Harry Roe's shot hit the upright before the break.March manager Paul Swannell introduced Ryan Francis in the second half but the Hares were unable to carve out a clear goalscoring chance.The game was made safe by Debenham in the final minutes when a scramble in front of goal led to the visitors netting a second.Tomorrow (Saturday), March travel to face sixth placed Felixstowe & Walton United. Felixstowe have won their last seven home games and nine of their last 12 league games.In October, March lost 4-2 at home to Felixstowe.March: Lee Smith, Rory Wheeler, Darren Hurst, Billy Tumblety, Stuart Warby, Ashley Spendelow, Harry Roe, Marc Welcher, Charlie Patten, Jason Dean, Ashley Brand.Subs used: Ryan Francis, Louis Lee, Martin Wells.
