Havant & Waterlooville boss Lee Bradbury was left to rue some awful defending as his side squandered to chance to move up to second in the National League South by losing 3-2 at home to Welling United on Saturday.
For a side that prides itself on a strong defensive core, The Hawks were lacklustre at Westleigh Park as they slumped to a fourth home defeat of the season against a Wings side who hadn’t won on the road since Boxing Day.
A brilliant brace from Jack Jebb and a solitary strike from Joe Healy secured the away side a memorable victory, but Bradbury was furious with the way in which his side defended and how they lost the game.
Speaking to the National League, the Havant manager said: “The bottom line is that we need to stop letting in silly goals. We’re making mistakes and that part is starting to creep into our game.
“The players we daydreaming for their winning goal. We switched off and let in the most simple of goals at the worst point possible.
“We played well going forward in the second half and it was probably fair to take a point from the game but we couldn’t get it.”
