ADAM Flint says none of his Witham Town players can have ground for complaint if they are left out of his side to face Haringey Borough at the Village Glass Stadium on Saturday.
Following last weekend’s 2-1 defeat at Romford, Witham have won just one of their last seven Ryman League division north outings and manager Flint is disappointed with some of his players.
He wants them to be showing that they deserve their place in his squad as he builds for next season and is prepared to sideline them if they haven’t responded to his call how he would expect them to.
And the Town boss said he would bring in other players from outside the club and younger age groups within Witham’s structure if he felt they were required.
Having used nine players in his first-team selections this season from within the club’s reserves side and Braintree Academy side, Flint has shown that he’s not afraid to promote youngsters.
He said: “I’m definitely learning things about players and I’ve told them that.
“We have some coming back this week and some know they will be left out.
“But that’s down to them as they have put themselves in that position.
“It will be their fault if they aren’t involved.
“It’s been our consistency that has disappointed me and I’m disappointed where we are to be honest.
“I know the club set a target of 45 points as that’s what the safety mark is considered as, but I’m disappointed as I feel we should be nearer to the 60-point mark.
“We can still get to that, but we need to show more than we are at the moment.
“We can’t just go through the motions.
“I can’t have that and there are boys in the wings who want to come in.
“They want their opportunity and some who have been playing have given me no choice.”
