Manager Taylor slams ‘silly mistakes’ as Chatteris Town bid to end winless streak
DEFIANT Chatteris Town boss Steve Taylor has called on his side to end their winless streak on Saturday by eliminating the “silly mistakes” from their game.
The Lilies, who have gone nine games without a win, travel to West Wratting in search of their first victory since September. Taylor’s troops have slipped to 12th in the Kershaw Premier League and have not kept a clean sheet since August.
The frustrated Chatteris boss said: “We haven’t had the rub of the green for ages but in some cases we’ve only got ourselves to blame. It’s the simple mistakes that have cost us.
“At the moment, every time the ball goes into our box we look like we’re going to concede. The players have to take responsibility for that.
“It would be quite easy for me to walk away but I know we can turn this around. The players have got to start doing it my way and they have to cut out the silly mistakes we’ve been making.”

Former Wisbech Town boss Taylor said: “I’ve not been able to pick the same side all season and we’ve only had two players play every game.
