WORTHING Football Club manager Adam Hinshelwood wants his side to be more ruthless after drawing at home to Walton & Hersham on Saturday.
Rebels missed several chances in the 1-1 draw as they remained sixth in the Ryman League South Division table, two points behind Whyteleafe, who drew 2-2 away to Hastings.
A crowd of 294 watched the game, which was the third highest home league gate of the season, on family fun day at Woodside Road.
Hinshelwood said: “This result opens things up a little bit and it’s done the teams below us a favour.
“We’ve got to be ruthless about it. If we want to get into the play-offs, it’s a game we’ve got to be coming away with three points from.
“We’ve got to be more ruthless with some of the chances we had. They were clear-cut, one-on-ones and we’ve definitely got to be making more of them.
“It’s two points dropped but it keeps our little run going, with a win and a draw in our last two games.
“If we get something at Whitstable on Saturday, it makes this point look like a good one, so that’s what we’ll be looking to do.”
Rebels were frustrated with the penalty decision for Walton’s equaliser and also felt they should have been awarded a late spot-kick when Omar Bugiel was fouled by the visitors’ keeper but only a free kick was given.
