Only A Matter Of Time Says Peters

By Jay Taylor

After the match I caught up with BARB manager Brent Peters to get his thoughts on the match.

“It was a much improved performance from Saturday, it was a massive improvement. However, it helps getting a key player back in a key position with Laquan Esdaille back from suspension. We were also boosted by Nathan Bond who went off injured on Saturday but returned and made a difference.”

Peters then had his say on the goal his side conceded, “The fact we conceded right on half-time when we didn’t look like conceding was a blow, there was nothing in the game going into half-time and it was just a blow and I honestly believe that goal wouldn’t have been conceded if our goalkeeper wasn’t injured, we’ve just got to deal with it.”

“On the balance of play we deserved not to get beat, we put in a good performance against a good Colne side.”

“Yes our goalkeeper pulled off two good saves; one was a wicked deflection off Lee Oldham and one was his own mistake in which he rectified.”

“Overall the difference was that wherever Colne were they were quite happy to take shots on from anywhere especially through Jason Hart whereas we overplayed rather than shooting.”

“All in all over the 90 minutes there was very little separating the two sides, we are disappointed to lose but we take lots of positives from the game and it is only a matter of time until we get on track. Good luck to Colne for the duration of the season.”
