Wilson belives Ramblers are due to hand out a hiding

BURNHAM Ramblers boss Keith Wilson believes his side could be about to dish out a hiding.
He was left in disbelief after watching his team lose 3-2 at home to Bethnal Green United, on Saturday.
Ramblers carved out a plethora of chances but finished empty-handed, in their latest Essex Senior League showdown.
However, Wilson feels that if they keep creating opportunities as they are at the moment, one of their upcoming opponents could feel the backlash.
“Someone is going to get a hiding,” he said.
“We’re playing some excellent football but not getting any breaks.
“Chances are falling to players that I’d expect to put the ball in the net.
“But it’s just not happening for some of them at the moment, for a combination of reasons including confidence and decision-making.
“We’re then getting punished for little mistakes at the other end of the pitch and it’s galling and hard to take.
“I feel like I’m repeating myself but we really did have some glorious chances at the weekend, especially in the second half.
“The one thing that disappointed me even more, though, was that heads seemed to drop when Bethnal Green got it back to 2-2.
“Rather than retaining the belief we could still win, it was like we didn’t have too much more to give.”
Ramblers are fourth in the Essex Senior League table but lost ground on the teams above them – London Bari, Takeley and Enfield – following their defeat against Bethnal Green.
Meanwhile, Burnham eased into the next round of the Gordon Brasted Memorial Trophy after winning 3-0 at Clapton last Tuesday.
Ramblers secured a 4-1 Essex Senior Cup second round win at home against Thurlow Nunn League premier division side Wivenhoe Town on Tuesday night
