Dover Athletic's Josh Passley promises fans better results

By Josh Fordham

Dover Athletic wing back Josh Passley has apologised for his team’s recent run of results after the lost 2-1 at home to Aldershot on Saturday.

The Whites have only won once in the last 10 games and have slipped back to fifth in the National League.

Passley said the team are working hard on the training pitch to pick up results and get their promotion push back on track.

He said: “We apologise for our results lately. Just get behind us and we won’t let you down in future weeks.

“It’s always tough when you aren’t getting the results you want but we have a good bunch of lads who are training hard so hopefully results will fall for us.

“We’ve got to keep working on things on the training pitch and working on little things that aren’t going well for us and put them into practice on Saturday.”

Mitch Walker made two costly errors against Aldershot and the team have conceded six goals in their last four matches.

Passley says the team will not dwell on individual errors and look to move forward starting with the FA Trophy tie with Marine on Saturday.

“We’ve gone from the best defence in the league to conceding sloppy goals. It’s frustrating but we will take it on the chin and work hard to stop this from happening.

“We all make mistakes so we have to get behind each other. We are a good bunch of lads and a solid team unit so we need to get on with it. We don’t blame anyone for mistakes so we just push on.

“We want to go as far as we can in the FA Trophy and win it. I won’t take any game likely.”

The 23-year-old, who has had spells at Portsmouth and Dagenham & Redbridge, has been a regular in Chris Kinnear’s side making 24 starts in the National League.

One thing he does want to add to his game is to get on the score sheet as he has yet to find the net this season, something that his teammates are not letting him forget.

“I’m happy with some performances and could have played better in some games. No one is perfect and I just have to keep working.

“I’ve been getting battered in training. I’ve got to keep getting myself in the right positions and it will come.”
