Clapton manager Jonny Fowell disappointed with poor performance from his men as they drew 3-3 with Southend Manor.

The Tons had to settle for a share of the spoils after a six-goal thriller at Southchurch Park and Fowell revealed it wasn’t good enough.

“We were poor, but fair play to Southend they played well and deserved something from the match,” he said.

“We just wasn’t at the races compared to Wednesday, it was like two different teams completely.

“Our decision making wasn’t good and cost us.”

With only home supporters allowed entry into the ground, Manor took the lead when pouncing on a poor clearance, but Tons were back on terms thanks to a penalty from Steven Sardinha.

“We failed to clear the ball and they capitalised on it, it was poor from us,” Fowell said.

“We then were given a penalty that wasn’t a penalty in my opinion and if it was the other way round I would have been cheesed off.

The visitors, with fans watching from the road outside the ground, then got their noses in front through Jay Morris, only for Manor to square matters for a second time.

And Clapton were then reduced to 10 men, but took a 3-2 lead with a looping shot into the top corner thanks to Jeffrey Cobblah’s 16th goal of the season, only for Manor to snatch a point in stoppage time.

“Jeff scored an absolute peach of a goal,” the manager admitted.

“After that when there was only two minutes to go we were trying to attack for another goal and they ended up equalising, so I’m really disappointed, as we should have been defended.

“I had a go at them after and said we cost ourselves in that final few minutes.”
