Manager John Coleman has said he was very disappointed to lose the game to Exeter last weekend because for him, it was a game we should’ve won.

Speaking to the Official Site after Exeter emerged as winners at the Store First Stadium in a three two thriller, a disappointed manager explained.

‘It’s disappointing. We didn’t put into practice what we trained, we didn’t press them as much as I thought we should’ve done. We’ve created more chances than them, they’ve had four shots on our goal and scored three of them. They’ve been more ruthless than us and that’s what won them the game.’

Coleman goes on to say that in his mind the best team didn’t win, because although they played some good football at points, they didn’t really hurt us outside of scoring those three goals so he felt we were better than them on the day and the side that deserved the win.

One thing that did irk the gaffer was the freekick awarded to them that led to their third goal, adding.

‘We get ourselves back into the game at 2-1 then you get a farcical freekick. It’s a great freekick by the lad, but it’s not a foul. These things can sometimes conspire against you and it’s just not your night so you’ve got to move on and go to the next game. We’ll play a lot worse than that and win.’

One thing the players will certainly be working on is the ruthless elements of our attacks, but the manager again talked about how wasteful we were with some of our ‘appalling shooting’ saying there was a lack of ‘conviction’ following what had been good lead up play.
