Chatham Town manager Kevin Watson demands an improvement following the heavy defeat at Tilbury
By Craig Tucker
Kevin Watson blasted his Chatham players after a woeful
performance at Tilbury on New Year’s Day.
Boss Watson (pictured) accused them of being mentally and
physically weak following the hiding dished out by a Tilbury side
who didn’t even have a recognised goalkeeper. The hosts were forced
to play defender Paul King in goal but Chats failed to test the
makeshift keeper in the 5-1 defeat.
Watson said: "We’re just poor at the moment. You can afford to
carry one or two players but not eight or nine.
"It was up there as our worst performance of the season and I’ve
told the players a few home truths. One of the hardest things in
life is being honest with yourself but it’s difficult to move
forward until you are.
He added: "We’re weak mentally and physically but I’d say the
physical side is a by-product of the mental side."

He said: "We have to get better and we will get better – I’ll
make sure of that."
