King Keeps Things In Perspective As His Wings Get Clipped

Steve King isn’t keen to read too much on back-to-back defeats at Welling.

After entering December with just one National League South loss all season, they went down at Torquay and then at Hampton last Saturday.

In an interview on the club’s official website, the manager says he is keeping things in perspective - and so should supporters.

“When we’re top of the league we don’t take the highs too high and when we lose a few games we don’t take the lows too low,” he said.

“I have sat back and reflected on things over the past few days.

“At the start of the season would we have taken being in the top four at Christmas?

“I think if we are being honest, anyone at Welling United would have. As a club we are in a really good place.

“I like the way the first half of the season has gone.”

King isn’t too worried about Saturday’s defeat at Hampton as they plan for Hemel this weekend.

“The conditions played a big part in the game. We couldn’t pass the ball like we wanted and the game became a dogfight,” King added.

“Hopefully things will be calmer at Hemel but it’s another team who are going to want to beat us.”
