LAW DELIGHT AS CHANGES BRING THE DESIRED RESULT
Sunday Dec 22, 2013
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law explained his decision to change things around at half-time in the 2-1 home victory over Dartford."We went out first half and did everything we didn't want to do. We spoke about going out and working them, using the extra man in midfield and passing the ball and it didn't quite work for us.
"It did last week with big John (Akinde) up front, but Paul (Clayton) is a different type of player and probably hasn't got that physical presence that John has. That said, with the injuries and what not, we had no choice.
“I needed to make the changes at half-time. We didn’t have any zip about us and too many times the ball was going sideways and backwards and we were getting caught in possession.
“We had to give it a bit of zest and with John (McGrath) coming on, he passes the ball sharp, we put (Daniel) Wishart on up top to try and cause their centre halves a little bit more of a problem and I think we came out really strong in the second half for the first 25 minutes and I think we deserved the win.
"If there is any criticism, when we were against ten men we had to utilise the spare man a little bit better and pass the ball better and take care with it. I think we were a little bit sloppy on that front, as we were probably for a lot of the game.
"I can't complain with the result and we couldn't have been more satisfied with the substitutions today" ended the Reds boss.
