Jack Giddens believes East Thurrock United have turned the corner after picking up encouraging results against promotion-chasing Dartford and Concord Rangers, the Basildon Standard report.
Rocks endured a disappointing first half of the season, which has left them in the National League South relegation zone.
But East Thurrock recovered from their Boxing Day defeat to Concord by securing draws against Dartford and the Beach Boys in the reverse fixture on New Year’s Day.
And, although Giddens feels Rocks should have claimed maximum points from their last two outings, the goalkeeper is aware that it is a step in the right direction.
“Due to the way we played in the second half, I thought we should have won the game against Concord,” said the goalkeeper, who also keen to praise the travelling supporters.
“We didn’t start the game very well and we were non-existent for the first 20 or 25 minutes if the truth be told.
“Concord went ahead in that time and if they scored again, it would have been difficult to come back into the game.
“But we stayed in the game and gave ourselves the opportunity to come away with a positive result.”
