Highworth Town boss Jeff Roberts praised his side’s efforts against promotion rivals Thatcham Town on Monday night but admitted a lack of commitment from certain players in previous matches has ultimately cost the club dear.
Roberts said he could not have asked for anymore from his side in the home clash against Thatcham which saw The Kingfishers grab a 2-0 victory thanks to two late goals from Liam Ferdinand.
The sending off of Rory Sproule on the hour mark did little to help Highworth although The Worthians still had various chances to nick victory.
Highworth’s promotion hopes are now out of their hands but Roberts still declared their league campaign as “progress” and said the club will push on again next season and bid to win promotion.
