Manager John Coleman has said he believes the margin of victory over Cambridge United at the weekend could’ve been larger had we made more of our chances.

It was a slow start again from the side but as the game went on we grew into it more and took control to secure a two one victory, meaning our seventh win in eight home attempts when Piero Mingoia grabbed himself a brace and speaking to the Official Site the manager was clearly very happy but still saw room for further improvement.

‘Jimmy Bell described it as two boxers pawing at each other and throwing tentative jabs and I think that was the case. We sprang into life with a great goal from Piero, it was a good ball from John O’Sullivan and a great finish. Then we’ve almost scored the goal of the season with Sean Maguire but it’s an unbelievable save from their goalkeeper.’

The manager knows though the scoreline suggests it was a tighter game than it was and he points to the number of chances that we had to extend the margin.

‘We got the second goal and you think it could be a platform to go on and get three or four. It’s disappointing that it’s become so uncomfortable in the last give minutes of stoppage time. I was wondering why there were five minutes added on. It seems to be Accy time when you’re winning but when you’re getting beaten it’s only three. It’s pleasing because we’ve seen it out but I’d have like a clean sheet.’

With that said, Coleman knows it was a good victory against a side doing well themselves, and he more than feels Cambridge contributed to what became a very good ‘smashing’ game with both sides trying to play football the right way, so he thinks the fans would’ve been suitably entertained and again for him that’s a credit to the boys for doing so well themselves.
