TILBURY boss Marc Harrison was left questioning the character of some of his players after suffering a 3-0 defeat to Great Wakering Rovers.

Second half goals from Firmin Ngandu - from the penalty spot - Shomari Barnwell and Billy Johnson allowed the visitors to secure all three points at Chadfields.

And Harrison was left frustrated by his side’s performance.

“I was more than disappointed,” said Harrison.

“I was really angry with our performance and the week of preparation seemed to be disregarded.

“We learnt so much about our players from the game and only a few could come off the pitch with any sort of pride.

“It was a below par performance and I felt for the fans that come to watch us every week.

“That sort of performance can’t happen if we want to achieve anything next season.”

Tilbury will make the short trip to Parkside to face Aveley in a local derby on Saturday and Harrison is hoping for a reaction.

“Because I know what the players are capable of, I am not going into the Aveley game with a different mindset to usual,” added Harrison.

“It’s going to be a difficult game because Aveley are a good side.

“But I think it’s the best possible game to go into after the defeat to Wakering and I am confident they will react.”
