Town down to 10 as Bricknell is sent off for his second yellow in the 70th minute. First yellow for a foul in the 67th minute, second for diving in the 70th minute

FT 2-0 for the host, went downhill fast after we had a goal disallowed in the 65th minute for offside, followed by the red card in the 70th.

Just home from game not great need to be better next time

Didn't make the game today. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: we are a lower-mid-table side. We have been over-achieving this season thanks to Mo's goals. Now he's riding off into the sunset, I fully expect normal service to be resumed.

I've seen alot of the Carshalton games thanks to their YouTube channel. They are a decent side - particularly at home. They have leap-frogged us now into the play-offs and I expect them to be thereabouts come the end of the season. At the moment we are just not as consistent as Hornchurch, Folkestone, Horsham, Carshalton etc.

2-0 lose now a slippery slide down the league  hope we don't go down this year

Old Towner.

Were you actually at the game.

Slippery slope not on today's performance.We were well I  the game until Billy Big Bollox ref makes an appalling decision and sends billy off for simulation when he was clearly fouled.

Anybody who watches Billy regularly knows the one thing he isnt is a diver.

The incompetent linesman ruled out a perfectly good goal by Junior when he was never in a million years off side.

Fans on this forum really should start going to games before writing negative posts on here.

Ok an honest report from someone at the game...

for 45 minutes we were outplayed by a lively Carshalton side.. with Billy isolated we posed next to no threat and had to watch the oppo get behind our full backs time and time again ... we looked like a bottom five side up against a promotion contender.... the second half showed a marked improvement very even and as stated a perfectly good goal ruled out... I was dead in line and it didn’t even seem close... another Bognor Regis decision which with our lack of fire power was absolutely crucial... with the goal and the lead I’m sure Billy would not have got the first yellow and it could have easily then been all 3 points whether we deserved them or not.... as for the future personally I think we are in dire trouble... Wilson limped off... we have players playing out of position and the squad is threadbare... as CC stated we have been reliant on Mo’s goals and are only where we are because of him.... the defending is all over the place god knows how many we have conceded in the last ten ?..... this is certainly not meant as a doom and gloom post but just my honest assessment as where we stand now.....

I kind of guessed that by your post.

If you had you would have seen a very spirited performance from the town but playing 12v10 is always going to be very difficult.

The ref was abysmal to say the least and trust me that isnt sour grapes.

I do believe the club are actively looking to strengthen the squad with 7day approaches in for as many as 4 players 3 forwards and a centre half so the management team are trying there best.

Whether any of them come to fruition we will have to wait and see.

I too was not at the game today as I had another appointment with the NHS.

I have read with interest what has been said and appreciate the anxiety of some supporters as to the outlook for our future without MO.

As I said previously we seem to have to rely on rumour rather than fact. I hope therefore that what we hear from WR has some substance and that we may soon bolster our playing strength for the second half of the season. 

This is required as we have presently a genuine platform from which can progress. That is assuming that those being approached will improve our squad rather than just being another group of ships that pass in the night. Rather like our recent ghost central defender.

"We can only wait and see". That's a phrase I seem to be constantly writing. Shows the uncertainty of being a member!!!!!

I was at the game and it is clear that the officials had a major affect on the match. I dislike going to Carshalton as I rarely see a good game there. For the offside decision I was not in a position to judge and gave the ref the benefit of the doubt. For the first yellow, many refs would not have given it but I could not complain, it was a clumsy tackle and, as is usual, Billy was winding the ref up throughout before that event.

I do not agree with Wildlife. Billy may not be a diver but when he thinks he is fouled he makes the most of it. On this occasion I do not believe that he dived but he did look for the free kick and, in my view, he was fouled and I think I was nearer than the ref. I have tried looking for the vid but it is not available. I thought that the ref gave Carshalton everything that they asked for but it was not until a good 15 minutes into the first half that we got our first free kick despite some crunching tackles from Carshalton. I note that as a team we do not fall over but our opponents seem to play and fall over quite regularly. And what is this when the ball hits the ref that the team that had possesion immediatly get a free kick, just what is going on in football. I recommend that whenever we get the ball anywhere near the penalty area aim at the ref!

I recall a situation early in the game when a Carshalton player writhed on the floor as though poleaxed. He got the free kick and then got up immediately.

As for the result if the goal had been given and Billy had not been sent off none of us know what would have happened. As it is it seemed as though the heart went out of the team after the sending off and Carshalton did not seem to want to press their player advantage after they were 2-0 up just playing it around the back knowing that we could not afford to challenge in that position being a man down.

We are in a difficult situation and I do not know whether we can get out of the current doldrums. The 3 points against Potters Bar were fortunate we were second best against Carshalton for most of the game. Ou form till Potters Bar is in and out and we will struggle to make the play offs.

Hmmm... not sure we're in any sort of doldrums Steph; we won our previous two games,  and were unlucky yesterday. It's been a long time since one piece of idiotic refereeing has cost us so badly. After 70 minutes I honestly didn't think we could lose - it wasn't pretty,  and our team selection was cagey to the point of timidity, but we had created all the decent chances, in fact Carshalton hadn't had a shot on target. 

Then Mr Smith decided that he wanted to be the star of the show...   🤬

Didn’t think we could lose... we created all the decent chances... jeez FJ what planet are you on... for 45 minutes they overpowered us and out played us... take those rose tinted glasses off and watch what’s really happening... now I realise why I stopped posting on here  and why our club will never ever get promotion... too many people that matter and make the decisions can’t wake up and see reality...
