Holbrook Sports boss Paul Romney says his side need a win to reignite their stalling season.

Sports were beaten 2-1 at home by Graham St Prims to leave Holbrook still searching for their first league win of 2015.

A Declan Carney reply after 31 minutes could not muster a positive response from the home side against a well organised and resilient Graham St Prims team.

“All credit to Prims today, they were the better side and limited us to a few half chances,” said Romney.

“Our season has stalled at the moment and we are a shadow of the side we were in the first half of the season. w

“We lacked concentration at key moments in the game and the usual intensity in our play was not evident. We look like a side that needs a win to set us on our way again.”

Holbrook toiled all afternoon, but could not breakdown a resolute Prims defence and were limited to a couple of half chances either side of half-time.

The visitors probed and asked many questions of the Holbrook team and they were rewarded after 20 minutes when Matt Adcock fired in from the edge of the box to give a deserved lead.

Four minutes later Pims extended their advantage when Toby Howard rose above the Holbrook defence to guide a header in the bottom corner of the net from a corner.

Declan Carney pulled a goal back, but it was not enough for Holbrook to rescue a point.
