INDIVIDUAL ERRORS COST US SAYS O'NEILL
Sunday Aug 10, 2014
Alfreton Town assistant manager Russ O'Neill felt the opening day 3-1defeat at home to Woking was as much down to individual errors as anything else.
He commented: "I thought we started the game well, we knew what Woking were going to be about.
"We started well, we got in front, we were happy about that and then we are back to the same old, same old.
"I thought we committed mistakes. Things we told them (the players) about before the game have come to hurt us which is very disappointing. Another set play to get them back in the game and I think that's where we have lost it obviously.
"We knew where the danger was, we have identified that, we knew what they were going to do from set plays. Instead of engaging, we have dropped and left spare men.
"The wide man coming off the line has done us for the second goal and we have not reacted to it. It's just individual mistakes. He (Scott Rendell) has punished us again and to be fair he has not missed, he has punished us.
"We have got to learn from that and go into Tuesday night. If we don't learn from those mistakes, it will be exactly the same again whoever we play at this level of football.
"I think we got rolled over and what our plan was to do to them they have done to us. They beat us at our own game to be fair. Credit to Woking and not so good for us."
