Ebbsfleet United manager Dennis Kutrieb felt some of his side’s early-season defensive demons returned to haunt them at Welling United.
Fleet were beaten 4-3, having initially battled back from a two-goal deficit, and Kutrieb told BBC Radio Kent’s Charles Webster:
“We conceded these goals too easily. The defending was not good enough today, and then you can’t win a game.
“It doesn’t matter if it’s Havant, if it’s Welling, or who else in the league, you need to prepare for every opponent, and if you’re not focused enough in defending – and we had this earlier in the season and we improved and got a little bit better – but today it was back again.”
