Barking 1 Ware 0

Changes are made but there's no reward for a good performance.

With both Kem Kemal and his assistant Tolga Huseyin unavailable for this game matters were put in the hands of Ryan Maxwell, the midfielder who made 11 appearances during our 2015/6 season in the Southern League.

He brought in some trusted players in the shape of central defender Lee Flynn and forward Leon Antoine, two men with plenty of experience. A third change saw the return of another former player, this time Harry Larner who played in defence during Nicky Ironton's managerial period.

It looked for a long time as though these changes might succeed in bringing Ware their first clean sheet of the season. Having survived an even first half without conceding they began to put together some good football and seemed to be edging the game when the hosts were awarded a penalty with less than 20 minutes to go.

Tom Coulton couldn't repeat his save of the weekend, guessing the wrong way to stop Theo Ola's spot kick. Ware continued to search for a goal but with just one from their previous four meetings with Barking the odds were somehow against it. By the end of the game the rain was coming down heavily, possibly a symbol of the visitors current state.

If the regular changes in management that have occurred in recent seasons leave any tell tale signs it is in the number different players appearing in the first team each campaign. Last season it was 57, the year before 62 and 55 before that. This doesn't help develop the tightly knit squad that will put in consistent performances from week to week.

So far 33 players have made appearances in the 22 first team competitive fixtures this season. Whether or not there are further changes at the top it seems likely that there will be yet more new names on the pitch in what will be a minimum of 32 remaining fixtures. There is a clear need for stability if Ware are to return to the form shown at the start of the season.

Ware: Tom Coulton, Junior Appiah, Alaa Oujdi, Harry Larner, Gareth Madden, Lee Flynn, Marcus Milner (Dean Mason 76mins), Ahmed Mohammed (Warren Kayembe 76mins), Murat Karagul, Leon Antoine, Rheo Josephs (Prince Madu 54mins). Unused subs: Gus Douglas, Ryan Maxwell.
