'My lowest point in 20 years' - Gore

1:00pm Thursday 5th December 2013

 DUDLEY Sport s joint boss Tony Gore described this week's 10-1 reverse against Sporting Khalsa as an embarrassment  - writes Mike Townsend

Gore admitted the defeat was his lowest point in 20 years of football

To make matters worse, Sports were hammered on their home ground in what Gore perceived to be a dishevelled performance.

Khalsa romped to victory with braces from John Cordy, Sam Pearson, Hayden Williams and a solitary strike from Mark Habbershaw, while prolific striker Liam Hughes took home the match ball with a hat-trick - taking this season's tally to 35.

Gore remained adamant that his side's lack of effort and the manner in which they lost, was the most hurtful and his main concern, even after admiring Khalsa's strong league and financial position.

"I didn't see this result coming. We started brightly and missed a couple of chances, then came the lack of effort ,attitude and pride."

Sports visit high flying Lye Town on Saturday and Gore admitted that changes are imminent , adding: "I'm trying to get a couple of reinforcements for Saturday to bolster us a bit, but it's hard. There will definitely be changes though."

The result was looked upon as a blip by Gore and revealed he would try to rebuild: "We will go to Lye and nobody will give us a prayer. We are looking for a much improved performance," added Gore.
