Tonbridge boss Steve McKimm says inconsistency continues to plague his side’s Ryman League Premier Division campaign.

After consecutive impressive draws with leaders Margate and second-placed Maidstone, McKimm’s side slumped to a 2-1 loss against Peacehaven at Longmead on Tuesday.

Lee Carey’s penalty put Angels ahead in the 15th minute but just two minutes later an unmarked Tom Burton equalised. Burton netted again in the 25th minute after the Angels’ defence failed to clear a corner.

McKimm said: “It was timid to say the least and we paid the price for making two errors at the back. It’s frustrating because we got two great results over the festive break and then we produce something like that.

“Inconsistency has been our Achilles heel this season but if the players were consistent week in, week out, they wouldn’t be playing at this level would they?

“I know that sounds harsh but that’s the way it is.”

Angels had been due to host Wingate & Finchley last weekend before the game fell victim to the rain. They visit Kingstonian on Saturday, who were 2-0 winners at Longmead in August.

McKimm said: “We know we can play and those results against Margate and Maidstone prove it. Now it’s time to start doing it on a regular basis.”
