Chatteris Town manager Ashley Taylor admitted he was left speechless after the Lilies surrendered a 3-1 lead to lose 4-3 to ten-man Cherry Hinton last weekend.

The Lilies’ already-fading top four hopes were dented yet again in Cambridge after they gave up their lead established through a Craig Gillies double and a Stuart Porter strike.

“In my four years of management I have never been left speechless but on Saturday I was,” said Taylor.

“10 games ago we would have gone on and won the game 5-1 but something seems to have changed.

“I need to know what has changed in the squad and I will be making changes myself.”
