Daventry Town boss Darran Foster has criticised his squad for ‘playing as individuals and not as a team’.

Town got back to winning ways in the Calor League Division One Central on Tuesday night and maintained their promotion push as they saw off Chertsey 2-0.

This followed on from Saturday’s 1-1 draw at St Ives, and although the team’s form is decent, Foster believes things will be much better with a bit more teamwork from his squad.

“Our performances have dipped recently and this needs to change quickly,” said Foster.

“We appear to be playing as individuals, not as a team.

“We need to regroup and get back to playing as a team unit.

“Individuals do not win trophies, this is a team game, and teams win promotions not individuals.”

Daventry are now fifth in the Division One Central, 10 points adrift of leaders Dunstable but with four games in hand thanks to their exploits in the FA Cup and FA Trophy.

They travel to Chalfont St Peter on Saturday, and a bonus for Foster is that he know only has two players - Scott Cross and Mykel Beckley - on the treatment table as injuries start to clear up.
