Just past the mid point of the season and the Gipsies can’t be blamed for lack of consistency. After a winless first 6 competitive games Alvin Zibi’s side went on to win three on the trot, precededing a run of 4 losses, since which they’ve had 6 straight wins.
Zibi is now hoping to build on the current run but will have to captain it without Oz Reeks. “We’re in to our stride now, it’s been a funny season thus far, but we’re confident that should we lose a game we can turn it around straight away without going on a run of further losses. It’s a blow losing Reeks. He’s been a solid member of this side for a good 5/6 seasons now and a top guy in the dressing room. Obviously his streaking incident will never be forgotten (see post 19/05/08) but we wish him well and he’s always welcome here”
