MALDON and Tiptree manager Terry Spillane feels Lady Luck isn’t on their side at the moment.

Maldon and Tiptree fell to a 2-1 Ryman League division one north defeat at the hands of leaders VCD Athletic on Tuesday night.

Spillane was disappointed but not with the way his side had approached the game.

Spillane said: “I was disappointed that we lost but we played really well.

“It’s just big moments in the game didn’t go our way.

“And that’s just the way things are going for us at the moment. Lady Luck isn’t on our side.”
