Godmanchester Rovers men must be more ruthless after firing a blank

New boss Matt Clements has ordered his Godmanchester Rovers players to be more ruthless in front of goal following a blank start to the season.
Clements’ reign began on a losing note as the local lads went down 1-0 at Brantham Athletic in their Thurlow Nunn League Premier Division curtain-raiser on Saturday.
A number of good opportunities to score went begging on the East coast and Clements wants that to change when Rovers entertain Thetford Town in their first home outing of the season at Bearscroft Lane tonight (Wednesday).
He said: “I’m certainly not going to panic about one result, but it does go down as a game we should have won.
“I always look at the positives in a game and I was very pleased with the amount of chances we created.

“But football is all about putting those opportunities away when you are on top and that is something we couldn’t do on Saturday.
“The challenge for the lads now is to be that bit more ruthless in front of goal. We have the players and we have the quality so it is just a case of working to get things right.

“We have a quick chance to do that against Thetford and hopefully we can get our first win on the board.”
Clements has defensive injury worries ahead of the visit of the Norfolk side. Taylor Parr picked up an ankle problem in their final pre-season training session last week and Tom Moran pulled a hamstring at Brantham.
