Burgess Hill Town boss Ian Chapman says his side must ‘get back to basics’ and stop giving away ‘stupid’ goals.

After a run of four victories, Hillians have now lost two on the trot – losing 3-0 to Hendon in the FA Trophy on Saturday and 4-1 to Met Police on Tuesday night.




And now they have a run of four away trips to Hendon, Brightlingsea, Thurrock and Needham Market.

On Tuesday night, Chapman was disappointed with how the goals went in, including one where keeper James Shaw fell over and two which resulted from corners after the Hillians gave away possession. Chapman said: “You can’t afford to give the goals away we did.

“We didn’t give up but the last two games we played two really good sides and what you can’t do is give them the leg up and we have done it both games.

“We have handed the game to the other team by not defending properly.

“Met Police are decent and Hendon are decent but we have got put in a good performance and get a result.”

He added: “We need to get back to basics and stop giving stupid goals away, that’s the key to any football.”
