Johnson Hippolyte 240216b

Staines Town threw the kitchen sink at defiant Brentwood but were unable to make it three wins on the trot for boss Johnson Hippolyte as they went down 1-0 at home on Saturday.

Ultimately, Swans did not create enough clear cut chances to beat their opponents despite a dominant second-half performance.

Hippolyte introduced new signings Tre Mitford (Burnham Town), a striker to cover for injured Pat Cox , and centre-half Andrew Mills (Woking) – the latter a big contributor at set-pieces and an imposing threat.

Cox’s injury was a blow for Staines for what was billed as a massive game and it certainly was for Brentwood, who are desperately fighting for their Step 3 lives in the bottom four and started the day 10 points adrift of the hosts.

It showed in the first half, Brentwood – who hammered Swans 7-0 last September in the corresponding fixture – dominating and possessing the game’s most influential players in left winger Andy Freeman and centre-forward Tom Richardson.
