Justin Luchford contemplates ringing the changes for Whitstable Town's final game of season

26 April 2012

Whitstable boss Justin Luchford is considering making changes for Town’s season finale after his players "didn’t turn up" for their final home game.

The Oystermen went down 1-0 at home to Burgess Hill, who started the day bottom of Ryman League Division 1 South, in one of the poorest games of the season at the Belmont.

Town now face a trip to Whyteleafe – who replaced Burgess Hill at the foot of the table – on Saturday, knowing that for a second straight week their opponents will be looking to win to secure their survival.

Luchford said: "We had talked at length with the players about not letting the season peter out but it looked like we were doing the exact opposite on Saturday."

Marc Cumberbatch and Gary Sayer should return in Surrey after missing the Burgess Hill game but Dane Luchford misses out after fracturing bones in both feet against Faversham two weeks ago.

Justin Luchford said: "Hopefully we can avoid that happening again this weekend, but we’ll have to wait and see.

"We’ll have a look at who we’ve got and how they do in training and maybe we’ll change it up a bit.

"We don’t want to finish on a sour note."
