Another season concludes here at the Dripping Pan on Sunday as Scott Booth’s side look to end it on a high with Durham the visitors. 

It’s a first season as manager at Lewes for Scott, and he gives his thoughts on the campaign.

“I think as I’ve said  previously, we’ve had a number of games that have been very close, where we’ve lost to a goal or drawn them when we’ve been ahead.

“All-in-all, we’ve competed with everyone. That was one of our main goals at the start of the season to make sure we competed with everyone and we’ve done that bar a couple of games where we weren’t at our best.

“In terms of our league position, of course I’d prefer we were a couple of spots higher, but that’s not the case and the table doesn’t lie, it’s the way it is.

“That’s down to tight games that we’ve lost, but we’ve also won games that were tight and won games that we probably didn’t deserve to win.

“But I think overall a mid-table finish is what we deserve because of the results we’ve got. The biggest thing to take from this season though is that we’ve competed well with every team.

“It will be really nice if we can go out with a big crowd supporting us at the Pan, and three points, that would be the best way we can finish this campaign.

“I’m really looking forward to Sunday, I want to end it with a win, and at home at the Pan.”

We can’t finish any higher than the seventh position we are in but need a win to guarantee we don’t finish any lower.

Durham are one spot below us and will be looking to leapfrog us with a result. It will be a big performance needed on the back of two defeats which Scott gives his reflection on.

“Both different games, both didn’t turn out the way we wanted them to.

“We can take different things from both of them. The last game we played, we created enough chances to win the game.

“It wasn’t the prettiest of games, a lot that down to the pitch and inability to play too much football on it.

“That said, we created enough chances to win the game and that’s the story of our season, games that have been tight and close, and I’d say we should have won a lot of them.

“It’s I suppose one of those things we have to keep working on, is turning these tight games into wins.

“If we’re looking at Durham on Sunday, it was the same thing when we played them away. we didn’t play well at all but we had the chance to go 2-1 right at the very end and we didn’t take it which came back to haunt us.

“Palace and Blackburn are very different teams which is why they were very different games. We needed to be really incisive against Palace and we just didn’t make the right decisions.

“We made some really sloppy ends to potential attacks, and we knew if we did that against Palace it was going to be difficult to create anything.

“Little bit different against Blackburn, we were able to put them under a bit more pressure, we did play better, but we didn’t take our chances like I said, and we need to put that right Sunday.”
