Redfearn ready to walk?

NEIL Redfearn all but admitted his time was up after his team's embarrassing reverse against Histon.

The Vics boss told the Guardian he was at a loss as to how to improve their fortunes, adding he planned to talk with chairman Mike Connett tonight.

"It's time to have a good think," he said.

"The most important thing is the football club and its survival in this division.

"I'll speak to the chairman and we'll put our heads together to come up with the right decision."

He left the Victoria Stadium shortly after 5.15pm with the other members of his management team - Kevin Sharp and Phil Sharpe.

There is no official word from the club, although the Guardian has learned that Connett is still unhappy with the players' contribution rather than that of the manager.

Yet once more the Danebank called for Redfearn to go, much in the same way they had done after the home loss to Burton.

On the game, Redfearn admitted his side's first half horror show left them with no chance of picking up any points.

"It's the same old story," he said.

"We're still trying to find a way to replace the players that left over the summer and it's been a lot harder than I thought it would be.

"Now is not the time to be experimenting with new players and new formations.

"The time for getting a result is now."

"Having said that, we can't be giving the opposition a leg up and a 2-0 lead without them having to do anything to earn it."

He singled out newboys Simon Heslop and Michael Coulson for praise before explaining the latter had departed with a calf strain.
