GODMANCHESTER Rovers' miserable run continued on Saturday as they went down to a narrow defeat at Diss Town.

Despite dominating large periods of the game, Rovers could not convert their chances, and were made to pay. It's a familiar story for Karly Hurst's team, who have found goals hard to come by of late.

"We just didn't get the luck," said the Rovers boss. "We dominated the match, but we just couldn't put the ball in the net.

"Confidence is a bit low in front of goal at the moment, so we need to get that back. If we can finish our chances when we are on top then we should be ok."

Both teams had chances in the first half, with Rovers keeper Trebes saving well from Wilson, before Stamper passed up a chance to put Rovers with a header.

Godmanchester also had a strong claim for a penalty when Boon was felled in the box, but the referee waved play on. They were made to rue the missed chances after 67 minutes, when Diss Town's Berry played a one-two from a short corner, and drove a 25-yard shot inside the far post.

The result is Rovers' sixth consecutive defeat, a run which has seen them drop to mid-table. Hurst says Rovers must now focus on taking maximum points from their last three games.

"We have three home games coming up now, and we want to finish the season on a high by winning all three matches - but we need to be more ruthless in front of goal," he said.
