MANAGER REACTION: ‘Despite defeat I must credit my lads’

Following The Game The Bacup Borough Manager Brent Peters Had This To Say

Despite a disappointing defeat I must credit my lads for their character they did show in an attempt to rescue the game from three nil down, Peters added “ from my point of view I am extremely disappointed with every goal we did concede, the Penalty was really harsh, no way was my defenders arm in a position it should not have been in, the Referee did us no favours what so ever in that decision, not that I would want any favours but it really was an extremely harsh decision, Peters went on “ the Avro second goal “ credit to their scorer, their lad showed an hunger and desire to aggressively get in to force the ball into the net, this despite the fact there was three of my players around the one Avro player, had those players have shown that same desire to clear the ball has the Avro did to score, we would still be in this competition, Peters went on “ And the same could be said for their third goal, ok our keeper should have done better with the initial effort but I have to question why my defender to whom was on hand to clear was away with the fairies whilst their striker reacted brightly to finish ? Peters added” When I was starting off Coaching in the game I was privileged to have worked alongside the late Walter Joyce, one of the biggest sayings he had for the young boys starting off in the game was “ BRIGHT MINDS “ something in those two instances my players failed to have, Peters went on “  Following these set backs I was pleased with what I did see, I was really impressed with not only Micah Evans’s contribution when he came on but his overhaul attitude, I was also pleased with our two debutants, Alessandro Ruocco did have a bright mind and awareness when scoring from their keepers miss fortune, he showed what myself and my coach believe, that he is a goal predator,  and I also was pleased with the contribution and quality finish from Alexander Nicholas, both players will, I am sure prove to be valuable additions to an already talented squad, sadly in the earlier parts of this game our talent did not shine like we know it can, but I suppose you have to give credit there to Avro to whom ensured by what ever means they were never going to give us that chance to play, however some of our players have got to be prepared for more games like this and the physicality, I do not have a problem with it, but it seems some of my players do, Man up I say, after all football is a physical game”
