Boss Tommy Williams has rung the changes at Kingsmeadow and Kingstonian skipper Alan Inns has admitted it was about time.

Defender Matt Drage and striker Nathaniel Pinney both left the club this week after Saturday’s 2-2 Ryman Premier League draw with Leatherhead.

Williams moved by signing 21-year-old former Cardiff City and AFC Wimbledon striker Jesse Darko and he got his Ks career off to a flying start with a goal in Tuesday’s 2-0 League Cup win at Walton Casuals.

Havant & Waterlooville midfielder Alec Przespolewiski – signed on a month long loan this week – also impressed on debut at Walton.

"Jesse has work commitments, so we don't know how musch we'll see of him, but he wants to get back into the professional game," said the manager.

"Between the two of us we can work something out. I was pleased with his debut. He works his socks off and has a great attitude.

"Alec isa goalscoring midfielder. We have been looking at getting goals from other areas on the pitch and hopefully he can give us that."

Ks have had a difficult first half of the campaign which sees them well off the pace in the play-off race.

And Inns, a Ryman Premier League winner with Hampton & Richmond Borough, is keen to see the changes take immediate effect in the league, starting with Saturday’s trip to AFC Hornchurch.

“We have been consistent in our inconsistency this season,” he said.

“It is hard to replace a striker partnership like Ryan Moss and Andre McCollin and the managers are desperate to do that.

“Jesse Darko has come in and he looked promising the other night.

“We’ve got problems at both ends really and the defeats we have had have been pretty boring for the fans as well.

“We need a confidence boosting couple of wins and hopefully we can kick on.

“We need a winning mentality. I’ve been at clubs where a winning mentality just breeds success.

“The manager has questioned whether a few people are playing for the team’s benefit or for themselves. There have been changes.

"I think this weekend could be a turning point and, hopefully, we can kick on from there."

Ks have the fourth worst home record in the division, but are the seventh best team in the league on away form.

And Inns believes that gives home fans a false impression of what the side is capable of.

“In non-League football it is vital you keep the few fans you have coming to home games by entertaining them,” he added.

“Things look worse because more people see the home games. Flip our home and away form around and it would be a different story.

“We know we need to get the place buzzing. It is something we talk about at training all the time.

"If we get on a good roll things can change very quickly in this league. We have seen that before."
