Devastated Noble says "it's still in our hands"

David Noble said he is "devastated" by the result and the manner of the second-half performance at Boreham Wood and fully understands the fans' frustration.

However, the very likeable and decent Noble is urging fans and the whole club to dig deep and rally round the players for the final five games as the team's National League fate is still very much remains in its own hands.

"To say that result was disappointing is an understatement," said Noble. "We wanted to come here and put in a good performance and that hasn't happened. I'm devastated. I'm devastated for the fans. They turned out in their numbers. They are right to have their opinion at the end as they pay their money. They are right to give us a bit of stick as we folded at 2-0. We just can't do that. 

"We had some really good chances in the first half. They go in and it's a different game. I thought we were ok getting in at 1-0 at half-time and then the keeper made that unbelievable save a couple of minutes in the second half from Sean. But then we collapsed. We just can't do that."

The result leaves Wealdstone above the bottom four on goal difference ahead of successive home games against Southend, Dorking, Chesterfield and Eastleigh followed by the final-day trip to Oldham Athletic.

"We've got five games left and we need positive mindsets, positive people," said Noble. "We need to be upbeat, we need people to take accountability. We will work hard to get it right for Tuesday. We need everyone on the same page. We want to put this right for this football club. We've got to have a reaction. We've got to do everything we can to put it right. I appreciate it's a lot to ask after that performance, but we need people to get behind these boys. Their heads are down and we've got to lift them as it's still in our hands."
