It was definitely a 'game of two halves' for Kendal Town after they lost 3-1 to Colwyn Bay on Saturday.

In the first half Kendal were dominant and went 1-0 up when Scott Harries scored.

However, after the break, Colwyn Bay came out having made a tactical substitution and looked a completely different team.

They began to cause Kendal problems, retained possession of the ball, defended much better and Kendal were stifled out of the game.

You can see how hard Kendal's players are working andit would be harsh to criticise their application to the games. However, they are being punished for mistakes. The plus side was the first half performance where the team played well.

Kendal are now into the second half of the season and are still sitting in the second relegation spot in the table. If there are any other positives I guess the other teams around them also lost at the weekend but it goes without saying the need for points is essential if the club are to survive.

The facts are that Kendal have only won one home game all season and picked up just three league wins going into Christmas.

You can look at circumstances and bad luck but the aim is to win games and while there are 20 or so league games left, Kendal need to start making their own luck.

Kendal face three huge games over the Christmas and New Year period. On Boxing Day they make the away trip to play Droylsden, while they host Clitheroe on New Year's Day.

After that Kendal are home to Mossley on Saturday, January 5.

All three matches are winnable and I truly believe that there is a good enough team to get away from trouble. You only have look at players such as Billy Akrigg (ex-Lancaster City league title winner), Gavin Clark (ex-Lancaster), Stu McDonald, Scott Harries, Steven Yawson (ex-Morecambe/Academy), Martin Grundy, Jacob Davies.

There are also other players within the squad who are good enough to turn things round.

I just hope that the players can find their form and, most importantly, find a way to win games of football.

Lets hope for a good 2019.
