Kenealy's frustration as inform Holyport are tamed by Thame United
Manager Martin Kenealy says Port will keep their heads high and move on after Tuesday’s frustrating 2-1 defeat at Thame United.
The Port boss felt his side had matched their hosts, and were deserving of at least a point, adding afterwards ‘you don’t always get what you deserve in football.’
Having taken the lead through Andrew Vine’s 17th minute strike, the visitors were pegged back by a goal from Ellis Hercules before half-time, and Jones scored what proved to be the winner in the 78th minute.
Port travelled to Thame hoping to register their sixth win in seven league games after Saturday’s 2-1 win over bottom-club Cheltenham Saracens at the Summerleaze Ground. Alex Duffy scored in the first half, but Port needed Jack Harding’s late winner to secure the points.
Improving Holyport are now up to 12th in the Hellenic Premier Division table, and need just two more points to match last season’s tally under former manager Derek Sweetman.
Kenealy said on Twitter: “Great performance tonight. You don't always get what you deserve in football. Luck will go our way another time. Keep heads high, move on.”
Port visit 15th placed Newbury on Saturday. Newbury had won twice in a row before last night's 4-0 home defeat to new league leaders Kidlington.
