Ramsgate FC boss Lloyd Blackman says his side are going to give someone a hiding

By Steve Tervet

Ramsgate boss Lloyd Blackman has warned his side are going to give someone a thrashing soon.

The Rams have failed to score in their last three games but Blackman isn’t concerned and he’s backed his strikers to end that drought in a big way.

Ramsgate, 19th in Bostik South, go to Corinthian Casuals on Saturday having drawn 0-0 with Guernsey last weekend.

Blackman said: “When you’ve got the players we have up front, someone is due a hiding soon. With Alfie Paxman up there with Rory Smith and Tom Chapman, some team is going to get an absolute pasting.

“It’s sod’s law that we’ve kept things a lot tighter in the last couple of games but haven’t managed to nick a goal. If we’d got one on Saturday, we could have got another two or three.

“But it’ll come, it’ll happen. With the firepower and ability we have in that front line, there’s no question those boys will score goals.

“There’s no knee-jerk reaction to what’s going on there. Those boys will score goals and they’ve proved that in previous seasons.”

Ramsgate kept only their second clean sheet of the season on Saturday with a very young defence.

Jacob Mensah impressed alongside Jack Penny in the backline while Billy Munday had a fine game on his full debut in midfield.

Blackman said: “The two young kids that came in performed the best on our side so I was extremely pleased that they came in and proved they’ll do well.

“That was Billy Munday’s first start. Jacob has started one or two games before and what great futures these boys have got.

“To keep Ross Allen quiet like that, not many defenders, especially 17 and 18-year-olds do that and for me that was very impressive.

“It’s great to give those boys the opportunity. What’s coming through here in the youth and the academy is great.”

Luke Wheatley and Adam Woollcott return after suspension for Saturday’s trip to Corinthian Casuals but Ollie Gray (hamstring) is still out.
