Embattled boss Alan Dowson says he is ready to make changes and freshen up his team after Woking’s alarming defeat to Ebbsfleet United in Tuesday’s (October 22) FA Cup fourth qualifying round replay.
The Cards started well in the 1-0 loss but conceded a poor goal from a corner to an Alex Reid free header from six yards and lacked creativity, width and ultimately credibility in some quarters as the players he has backed came under close scrutiny.
Having reached the third round last term, being dispatched at the first hurdle this time around is especially hurtful for Dowson, who conceded his ambitions to take the club full-time will not be helped by missing out on good prize money in the competition.
He revealed the time has come to make changes.
“The first 20 minutes we were excellent and passed it well but in the second half we never had anyone brave on the ball,” said Dowson.
“It’s on my head. I feel as though I have to make decisions now.”
