Saints enjoyed a fine start to the new campaign but are in freefall after suffering six successive defeats in three different competitions. A run of four Southern League Premier Division Central losses in a row has been book-ended by exits from the FA Cup and the FA Trophy. They bowed out of the latter competition when losing 2-1 at AFC Rushden & Diamonds last Saturday. But Marheineke is hopeful his men can climb out of the doldrums with a positive performance when hosting Stratford Town in a league clash at Westwood Road tomorrow (Saturday, 3pm). Its a difficult time for us, admitted Marheineke. While we have been able to take positives from several of our recent performances, this is a results-based business and it is now time for the players to stand up and be counted. We have a young group and we have to use experiences like this to become mentally stronger. Im not concerned with the league table at this stage of the season. Weve picked up a point-per-game which is obviously considerably better than we had managed at this stage of last season. We didnt get over-excited after a good start so were not going to panic after a tough run. We had a very positive chat after the game against Diamonds and a line has been drawn under the season so far. Were treating the game against Stratford as a new start. Marheineke is hopeful of making a couple of additions to his squad in the next fortnight.
