Since JOK was sold and Foyle got the curse of MOTM, we’ve played 3 away from home, not scored and conceded 12, yesterday it was Dartford’s turn to beat us, it wasn’t the abject 4-0 of last season nor was it a drubbing as suffered in Luton but a 2-0 defeat is still a defeat. Let’s cheer ourselves up by looking at the prediction league, even if it is awarding points for our misery!
