|Matty scores against Gr*msby in a previous loan spell at Ebbsfleet|
So on Saturday we kept our fantastic home record up by securing a 2-0 victory when Cheltenham came to town. Goals from Etienne Esajas and Sam Winnall were enough to secure the points, but it is also worth mentioning another sterling performance from our defence who kept yet another clean sheet.
We now have a week off due to the York fixture being postponed as they had “3 international players on duty”, since when is a Scotland under 21 allowed to count as a full international. It’s a joke.
Anyway on to the recruitment going on at the moment and only last week Laws said he was hoping to bring a couple more faces and well he certainly delivered. Right up until an hour before kick off on Saturday the loan signing of Doncaster’s David Syers was kept under wrap despite their being rumours the deal was done as far back as last Wednesday. He stepped in to make his debut and certainly gave us a good taste of what to expect from his month here.
This is not going to be the last new face before the Exeter match a week on Saturday, as Laws has hinted in the past couple of days that he is on the lookout for a winger, with depth in that department thin with Andy Welsh being out long term.
Going out on loan is striker Matty Godden who has joined Dartford for a month. He made his debut last night and seemingly impressed, whilst also firing in their only goal of the game in a 1-1 draw with Salisbury.
It is also worth mentioning that striker Connor Jennings who is out on loan at Macclesfield has now scored 6 in his last 7 games for the silkmen. Does he still have a future at our club? For me, no. I believe he will leave in January for a small fee to a team in and around the top of the Skrill premier.
