Storrington FC manager Nigel Dyer will look to change his side’s pre-match build up in a bid to avoid conceding early goals.

Saturday’s 3-0 defeat to Little Common was sparked by a second minute Jamie Crone goal - although the hosts were made to wait until the final five minutes to wrap-up Crone’s hat-trick and the win with two late goals. And Swans manager Dyer said something must be done about his side’s slow starts.

“We let in an early goal again,” Dyer said. “Whether this is coincidence or something we need to do differently in our warm-up. Little Common were playing well and we had to defend well first 15 to keep it 1-0. Then we started to get into the game the more as the half went on. We started the second half the better side and were up until the second goal. Maybe we left their player a bit too much space for their second and third goals, which was a bit disappointing especially with the quality of their forward players, which was probably the difference on the day.

“But after the way we played in the half, we felt maybe we deserved a bit more out of the game.”
