Dowson laments Kingstonian's unthreatening behaviour
Kingstonian striker Andre McCollin may be in the form of his life, but boss Alan Dowson wants more.
McCollin scored four goals for Ks in their 4-1 win over Grays Athletic at Kingsmeadow on Saturday, before scoring what proved a consolation in Monday night’s 2-1 defeat to Bognor Regis Town.
It took his tally to eight goals in nine games in a campaign that has seen Ks score 17 times in the Ryman Premier League this term.
Fifteen of those have come from McCollin and fellow frontman Ryan Moss, but Dowson is only too aware he needs goals from elsewhere if his men are to maintain a title challenge.
“We’ve got to sort a few things out,” said boss Alan Dowson on Monday night.
“Andre and Ryan have been brilliant and scored 15 goals between them, but if the
opposition stop them we do not look like getting a goal.
“We have to find goals from other areas if we are going to kick on.”
Ks went behind to a 23rd minute Ben Godfrey goal for Bognor on Monday night, but McCollin levelled matters from close range in the second half.
But Matt Drage hauled down Kane Wills to receive a second yellow card and concede an 85th minute penalty that substitute Ben Johnson – who only arrived at the ground 15 minutes before kick-off – placed into the net.
“We lacked that bit of spark, but at the end of the day they were the better team on the night,” added Dowson.
Ks travel to Margate in the FA Cup first qualifying round on Saturday, and the manager played down his side’s chances of progress.
Dowson joked: “I’ve not got a great record in the FA Cup, so I think I’ll just be concentrating on the next league game.”
