Needham Market go into Saturday’s home Ryman Premier Division clash with Lewes still looking for their first league win of the season.

The Marketmen picked up a point in a 2-2 draw with Burgess Hill Town at the weekend before suffering a 1-0 loss at Brentwood on Tuesday night.

Manager Mark Morsley believes the club’s first win is just around the corner, saying: “We’ve improved immensely in the last week and it’s only a matter of time before we pick up our first three points.

“It’s going to be a long road for us but we will get there. We’ve addressed some of the issues we had by bringing in new personnel and we look in good shape going into Saturday.”

Morsley was disappointed that his side returned home empty-handed from Brentwood though.

“We conceded a very disappointing goal from a set-piece, but we absolutely battered them in the second half.

“We had a perfectly-good goal disallowed and we just didn’t get the breaks when we needed them. At times we had players trying too hard.”

On Saturday, a last-minute goal from Adam Mills rescued a point at Burgess Hill Town.

“There will be a lot of teams in this league happy to come away with a point from Burgess Hill this season,” admitted Morsley, who handed goalkeeper Danny Gay a start following his recent return to the club.

Needham Market took the lead midway through the half when Michael Brothers hit a low drive across the box and into the far corner of the net with home goalkeeper Josh James well beaten.

Burgess Hill levelled matters five minutes later and took the lead in the 78th minute before Mills headed a well-taken goal to equalise.
