Burgess Hill Town’s assistant manager John Rattle has reflected on a disappointing performance against Tonbridge Angels.

The Hillians lost 4-0 with all goals coming in the first half and Rattle believes the Senior Cup win against Eastbourne Borough might have had an impact on the performance.

He said: “The boys had a good performance on Tuesday and maybe weren’t mentally in the right place to play a Bostik Premier League match against a very direct and physical Tonbridge side.”

He added: “In this league you’ve got to come prepared.

“You can’t give away three goals in 20 minutes, like we did. We’ve got some good players but we’ve got to be mentally stronger and we weren’t that today.

Rattle also questioned the performance of his players. He said: “People say ‘I can play at this level’ but I beg to differ….not picking anyone out but a collective comment.”
