Jerry Gill wants more from his Bath City players after two contrasting halves of football saw them slip to a midweek defeat against Billericay Town – withan FA Trophy trip to National League Barnet coming up this weekend.

Ross Stearn put the Romans in front early and although visiting Ricay found a swift leveller, the hosts continued to look sharp in the first period.

The second, however, saw City lose the flowing football that had them in the ascendancy, before a long cross from Sam Deering squirmed into the corner to hand Billericay the points.

“It’s probably the most disappointed I’ve been for a very, very long time,” Gill said. “I thought the game at half-time was there for taking, I felt as if we were in the ascendancy; the far better side.

“The first half was the best performance we’ve had for a long time. I don’t think we’ve played that well for the last three or four weeks in possession, but we certainly moved it with some ball speed, got switches of play.”
