CHIPPENHAM Town were handed a harsh reminder of their new surroundings as they were beaten 4-0 by Welling United.

Mark Collier’s side were fresh from a weekend off, but a lack of concentration cost them as they failed to claim back-to-back wins in the National League South after beating Hemel Hempstead Town 5-1 in their last outing.

With two goals either side of half-time, the Chippenham boss says his players came away with what they deserved.

Joe Healy headed home in the 38th minute to put Welling ahead, before Tom Bradbrook made it two four minutes later.

In the second half, Bradbrook got his second as Bradley Goldberg popped up with the fourth for the hosts.

“We’ve come back down with a bump from individual mistakes, they scored from two set-pieces in the first half and that was due to poor marking,” said Collier.

“We are a little bit too nice, we aren’t ugly enough and we’ve missed out on what could have been a decent return of points. “We set up with a plan to come away and quieten the crowd, we were quite comfortable and then out of nowhere, we were 2-0 down and chasing the game.

“People didn’t do their jobs which is difficult because we talk about it and talk about it, we spoke about it half time and then conceded a poor goal.

“At 3-0 the game was over, I think they had two free headers in the box, two free shots in the box and they’ve scored four goals.

“I don’t put it down to the break, I put it down to individuals not doing their jobs properly and those people know who they are.

“I have no doubt that we can be competitive in this league, but you can’t just be okay, we have to be better than that.

“We have set our standards and you get what you deserve in at this level and that is what we deserved.”

The second half saw new addition Josh Smile make his debut for the Bluebirds and Collier was happy with what he saw from the former Fulham youngster.

“Josh has been training with us for a couple of weeks and did particularly well in training,” he added.

“He has had a little bit of a taste of it on Saturday and it was a difficult debut for him and a difficult day for all of us.”
