A deeply frustrated Wayne Burnett had to admit Northampton were the better side yesterday as they took a two nil victory over us.

The defeat did bring to an end our three game unbeaten run and that wasn’t something that pleased the manager as he spoke to the Official Site to give his thoughts post match.

‘The first half was certainly frustrating, we didn’t really perform and they got two goals. When you give a team a two goal head start it’s very difficult to come back. I was very disappointed with the goals we conceded, we made incorrect decisions.’

For the first goal the gaffer says we made an ‘incorrect decision to go for the ball’ and then for the second one the player has simply lost his marker and it was all too easy for them, and at that point 25 minutes in we have a mountain to climb.

Of course he was far happier with our second half showing in the game, but even there he feels there is still a lot of improvement that the team can do as he feels we still should’ve been better in the second period and made more of the chances that we did create.

‘We created chances we just couldn’t put one in the net. We are getting in positions and I was happier with our performance in the second half.’

With injuries proving to be a problem, the manager also gave Mason Bloomfield his competitive senior bow and overall he was pretty pleased with his showing as hopefully he’s definitely one for the future for us and in the long term it will have done him the world of good, but the overriding feeling was disappointment because a loss is never nice to take.
