“Failure To Score Cost Us” Says Peters

Manager Brent Peters FA Vase Replay Comments:-
“It is really of no consequence  how well we may have played and how much we have dominated possession in the second half, the simple facts are we have not found a goal in 210 minutes of football and that alone says it all and that says why we are out of the competition.” Peters added ” AFC Liverpool capitalised on our downfall in our set up when defending situations, the only goal of the game came as a result of bad marking from a throw in which pulled others out of position and suddenly gaps appeared from which they exploited us. Not only on their opener
but shortly following we had Paul Horridge to thank for keeping us in the tie. The second half was a total different mind set from our lads, with this mindset they were determined, showed character, they kept believing something would come from the game and on another day something would have come as we have camped in their half and big time have taken the game too them. Peters concluded ” In the final third we let ourselves down through not being more composed on the ball. It was evident it was not to be our day when Kingsley did brilliant competing for the ball before sending an excellent strike that rebounded off the far post. In addition their keeper was excellent, however all our hard work was for nothing.if we can’t hit the back of the net in 210 ten minutes and also can’t keep a clean sheet, then whilst it is a bitter pill to swallow, we got what we deserved, if only for those two reasons”
