Stones were beaten 3-1 by Beachboys on Saturday

Wealdstone manager Bobby Wilkinson admits he was disappointed with his side’s display after they lost 3-1 at Concord Rangers in the National League South.

Despite a goal for Eddie Oshodi, Stones crashed to a surprise defeat away to the Beachboys.

The loss was a second defeat for the west Londoners in their last three away games in the league, and Wilkinson was far from happy with what he saw.

“I don’t think we turned up. I wasn’t very impressed with my back four and I don’t think they won a header,” he told the club website.

“We conceded sloppy goals, we had a couple of chances we should have taken, but I won’t blame them. Overall, it was just a bad day at the office.”

It was an interesting afternoon for Oshodi, who conceded a penalty before finding the net.

With Wealdstone trailing 1-0 in the 50th minute, the former Watford defender clumsily fouled Ben Greenhalgh in the box, with the Concord man later converting the spot kick.

It was a needless foul from Oshodi, and Wilkinson did not leave anyone uncertain about his feelings regarding the penalty.

“It was terrible defending. I’m not here to make excuses, that was terrible defending,” Stand up, Eddie,” added the Stones manager.

“I’ll back you and back you, but you have to back me. Stop giving away silly penalties and do your job. I’m not happy about that at all and it will be dealt with.”
