The team suffered their ninth defeat of the campaign against Tranmere Rovers, prompting Mahoney to emphasize the importance of bouncing back in the upcoming match against Wimbledon.

Sitting in ninth place in the table, Mahoney underscores the significance of the impending game against Wimbledon as a test of character for the squad.

Reflecting on the inconsistent season, Mahoney stresses the necessity of breaking the pattern of alternating wins and losses to secure a place in the playoffs.

He acknowledges the frustration within the team and expresses gratitude to the fans who traveled to support them. Looking ahead to the match against Wimbledon at Priestfield, Mahoney hopes to deliver a performance that will give the fans something to cheer about.

While Mahoney has been contributing with goals and assists, he recognizes the team’s collective need to create better opportunities and exhibit more resilience, particularly when trailing.

He points out the positive impact of the head coach in terms of increased possession but emphasizes the importance of converting possession into clear-cut chances. Mahoney remains hopeful that with time, the team’s ball possession will translate into more goal-scoring opportunities.
