New Gloucester City manager Chris Todd watched on from the stands as the Tigers lost 1-0 away at Billericay Town.
Moses Emmanuel scored the only goal of the game from close range, moving Billericay two points clear at the top of the National League South table.
City were unlucky not to come away with anything from the game, after a positive performance that will give Todd a lot to think about ahead his first match in charge this weekend.
