Clapton manager Jonny Fowell says defensive errors cost them in their 5-0 defeat against Tower Hamlets.

The Tower Hamlets player-manager opened the scoring himself as the home side scored three times in the first half to take firm control.

And Ashanike was joined on the score sheet by striker Luke With, as Hamlets struck twice more in the second half to complete their nap hand and make it a miserable night for Tons, who suffered a third defeat in four outings.

“It was four mistakes and a blatant offside, but we had 70 to 80 per cent of the play,” Fowell said.

“We outplayed them and I said to the boys we gave an own goal away from the first corner, really poor defending, and then Dylan Ebengo got caught.

“They’ve had six shots and scored five goals so what does that tell you.”

The boss did admit it will take time for his new-look side to gel after losing a handful of players to Bostik North side Basildon United a few weeks back.

“It’s a new team, we’ve lost a lot of players and have brought in a lot of new players, it has killed us as we’ve only had one training session together so it’s going to take time.

“We’ve got a left-back playing left wing, we brought in a new lad called Ali Al-Nashi but he’s now gone away to play Futsal for Norway.

“He’s representing his country so it is what it is, but we haven’t become a bad team over night.”
