Manager Wayne Burnett has said he is relatively happy following our two one win over Bury yesterday, but couldn’t and wouldn’t hide the fact we were hopeless in the first 45 minutes.

In a poor first half from both teams really, Afolabi Obafemi gave us the lead two minutes before the break, before Rhys Murphy grabbed his fourth league goal of the season on 52 minutes.

Bury rallied somewhat and earnt themselves a late consolation penalty which Anton Forrester dispatched three minutes from time.

Another mixed day for Burnett as he admitted he wasn’t pleased with our showing for the second week running, but he has to take some pleasure from us picking up all three points again.

Speaking to London24 following the game, the gaffer explained.

‘I’m delighted with the result, the performance wasn’t great but overall we did okay. I thought we were hopeless in the first half if I’m being perfectly honest, but it shows that we are getting their slowly because we’ve not played particularly well and we were 1-0 up.’

He adds that we were a little fortunate to be in the lead at the break, but we improved a lot in the second half so he felt we were worthy winners on balance.

As for the conceded penalty following a Billy Bingham handball, Burnett says he didn’t have a clear view of the penalty so he’ll have to look at it later, but he feels the team need to be a bit braver as we looked quite wobbly once they got the goal back and he wants us to be a bit sharper in seeing games out.
