David Hockaday: Players need support

Forest Green Rovers boss David Hockaday has expressed his concern at a perceived lack of support for his side during Saturday's defeat to Hayes and Yeading United.

The Rovers slumped to a 3-1 loss at the hands of the relegation-threatened side and Hockaday was less than satisfied with the supporters' contribution.

Hockaday told The Citizen: "It does worry me that we came off the pitch at the end and there were two or three people in (the) stand, supposedly supporters, who actually looked happy that we lost.

"That really upsets me because there are times when we're looking for people to get behind the team and they don't.

"It concerns me because the boys have tried their socks off. Yes we didn't put our chances away and we conceded some poor goals, but some of the football we played was decent.

"Yes we have to get the fans going, but there are lots of times when we are looking for them to get behind us.

"It didn't happen (on Saturday), the chemistry wasn't there."

And Hockaday admits a major problem area which needs to be addressed is his side's profligacy in front of goal - an issue he believes has plagued them all season.

He added: "I actually thought the performance was okay, but we haven't put our chances away and that has cost us all season.

"They (Hayes) had two shots in the second half and we were on top for vast spells, but it's no good being on top and not putting the ball in the back of the net.

"That's been our bane all season and it's something we'll put right for next season - it's what I'm most upset about."
