Hungerford Town manager Danny Robinson praises 'phenomenal' support at Bulpit Lane
Hungerford Town manager Danny Robinson has expressed his gratitude towards the supporters after another strong turnout at Bulpit Lane.
A crowd of 452 attended their 1-0 defeat to Hemel Hempstead Town on Tuesday evening, which was another significant figure for the Crusaders.
The home faithful were, however, unable to witness a win as Hungerford missed the opportunity to move second in the National League South.
After the game, Robinson was quick to praise the supporters who were at the game and believes the club continue to make huge strides.
“It’s phenomenal and you can see how far we are progressing both on and off the pitch.
“I always say that the people behind the scenes are brilliant and they never stop working and to get a number like 452 on a Tuesday night shows you we’re moving in the right direction.
“People are getting involved, they’re wanting to come to Bulpit Lane and it’s brilliant because it gives the lads such a massive lift.
“It’s unbelievable and hopefully it continues, but we have to do our bit on the pitch because we’re forever grateful to whoever comes and supports us.”
Despite failing to score on Tuesday, and suffering defeat, Robinson did find positives from the performance.
Hungerford did have the ball in the net twice in the first-half, but both Ryan Seager and Sol Wanjau-Smith’s goals were ruled out for offside.
“I was really pleased with the performance and the application and I think we should have been 1-0 up at half-time.
“I think the linesman got the decision wrong and it was obvious to everyone in the ground that Sol was onside by a couple of yards.
“The decisions can cost you, but we created so many chances and we didn’t have that little bit of lady luck.
“You get games like that, but I am pleased with the performance and we look forward to Saturday.”
Hungerford will have the opportunity to bounce back on Saturday when the host Ebbsfleet United at Bulpit Lane and Robinson believes it’s the perfect fixture to have.
“What a game to try and put something right because they are one of the best in the league and it’s why the league is so good.
“We’re going to look forward to it, we’ll be underdogs once more and we want to try and put a few wrongs right on Saturday.”
