BILLERICAY Town boss Harry Wheeler believes too many players in his side are ‘not good enough’ after missing out on the National League South play-offs.

A 2-0 defeat to Bath City, courtesy of second half goals from Robbie Cundy and Tom Smith, resulted in Billericay finishing a solitary point outside of the top seven.

But Wheeler believes Town did not deserve to extend their campaign after throwing away leads too often.

“We’re disappointed but we got what we deserved,” said Wheeler, who returned for a second spell in charge of the club in January.

“It comes down to the fact that, at the end of the day, we weren’t good enough.

“Throughout the season we've had moments where we have been leading with five minutes left in games and lost.

“We’ve had that three or four times since I have come back and another three or four times before I was here, so it’s not just since I’ve been here.

“It just shows that our concentration hasn’t been good enough.”

Billericay welcomed Bath, who had already booked their place in the play-offs, with destiny in their own hands.

Town would have ensured a place in the top seven with victory at Dartford five days earlier, but two late goals saw Wheeler’s charges suffer a 2-1 defeat in Kent.

However, Billericay remained in the play-off places and knew three points at the AGP Arena would result in them extending their campaign.

But Bath broke the deadlock just before the hour mark as Cundy headed a corner home.

Smith’s deflected strike doubled the visitors’ advantage four minutes later and Billericay were unable to respond.

Wheeler was frustrated with how his side reacted after going behind.

“I think the tell tale is that we were 2-0 down and it looked like Bath were 2-0 down,” said the Billericay chief.

“They were the superior side with more men and characters in the team.

“A few of the players in our team aren’t good enough.

“Everyone goes ‘he’s good enough but got a mistake in him’. But if they’ve got a mistake in them then they’re not good enough.

“Bath didn’t have a mistake in them.

“There are too many in our team that switch off, lose their man at corners or make mistakes at one moment in the game.

“We’re in every game but the players have one little moment and that was the tell tale again.”
