ZUFRAN Asghar has admitted that Singh Sabha Slough dropped two points after a 1-1 draw away at Frontline on Saturday.

Singh Sabha are new to the East Berkshire League this season and have been thrown straight into the deep end of the Premier Division, though Asghar hopes his team will be competitive.

Pritpal Raju gave the visitors a lead early on at Frontline but the hosts recovered to salvage a share of the honours, leaving Asghar disappointed at the result.

The Singh Sabha player-assistant told the Observer: “I’m hoping we would have won on Saturday so we’re a bit disappointed with the result.

“We had a good squad and numbers, five substitutes, and we started off well. We dominated the game and scored an early goal.

“All the things you discuss prior to the match were on point, but then we switched off and they managed an equaliser late on.

“It’s two points dropped and we’re disappointed, but we dropped our levels when you consider how good we were in the first 20-30 minutes. We could have racked up a cricket score.

“We were definitely the better team in the first half and their keeper made numerous saves. Then shots went wide when they should have been on target.

“We switched off and Frontline came back, and our keeper had to help us out. We had to hold on at the end and to be fair Frontline were throwing everything at us.

“We should have won the game but let ourselves down.

“When you consider the first 20-30 minutes, if we lost the game we would have been disappointed, but in the end the way Frontline came back a draw was a fair result.”

Commenting on the club’s aims and ambitions this season, Asghar said “We had a poor start to the season after losing to Beaconsfield, but played much better in the next two games against Taplow and Langley.

“We had hoped to kick on last weekend but not to get the three points was a bit disappointing.

“We’ve got good enough players and depth and we’re just trying to finish as high as possible. We’re good enough to finish towards the top but if we play like we did against Frontline then we can’t think about it.

If we get the performances in the results should follow. Our aim is to win every game, get the three points, and have good runs in the cups."

Singh Sabha welcome Old Windsor this Saturday (2pm). Asghar said: "We will go into the game looking to win but to be fair Old Windsor will as well.

"If we play well then we can get the three points but we will need to play a lot better because Old Windsor have been around for a while."
