Topsy-turvy results continue to give Burnham's management team a headache

The topsy-turvy nature of Burnham's recent results continued this week as they came from behind to beat Wembley 2-1 at the 1878 Stadium on Saturday before losing by the odd goal in seven against Virginia Water at Stag Meadow on Tuesday night.

The Blues have played nine matches since Ben Murray took over as manager in mid-January, winning four of them, but they've struggled to find any consistency, something he'll be looking to put right over the course of the next few matches and into next season.

The talent is clearly there, as illustrated by this week’s goalscoring exploits, but defensively they’ve looked a little suspect, conceding three or more goals in four of their last seven matches.

Their up and down form has left them 13th in the division, however, only three points separates the Blues from eighth-placed Reading City so a big jump up the table is still possible with five matches to play. However, four of their remaining five games are away from the 1878 Stadium, starting with Saturday's trip to fourth-placed Egham Town.

Goals from Kane Guy-Seifert and Tayo Ajayi, in the 92nd minute, saw them come from behind for victory over Wembley on Saturday, and they headed into Tuesday's clash at Virginia Water hoping to make it three league wins on the spin.

Unfortunately, they fell 4-1 behind before battling back to take it to the final whistle thanks to goals from Naser Bakare, Ajayi and Rhys Harper.
