Chatham boss Kevin Watson wants a response from his players after an "unacceptable" display last time out.

Tuesday's point from a 1-1 draw against Erith & Belvedere in Ryman League, Division 1 North disguised what Watson described as a poor performance and he is hoping for improvements at home to Waltham Abbey on Saturday.

Of the Erith display he said: "The pitch wasn’t good, it was bobbly, but that’s not an excuse. It was the same for both teams.

“There were some inexcusable errors. I am disappointed with what I saw and it’s not acceptable.

“People come down and watch and I’m beating the drum that we are a team that play good stuff and are worth watching. That performance didn’t do any favours to me promoting that.”

Watson added: “I will be making some changes and I’m looking for a response. I could drop most of them, but I don’t have a big enough squad.”

Brad Potter is a doubt after picking up a knock but Austin Gacheru and Kieran McCann will return after being unavailable in the week.
