LAW HAS NO COMPLAINTS
Sunday Sep 1, 2013
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law had no complaints after seeing his side go down to a third successive away defeat in the league with the 3-1 reverse at Forest Green Rovers on Saturday.
The Reds boss reflected: "From the start, we gave ourselves a mountain to climb. We did not get tight enough to them from the start.
"The referee didn't cost us the game but Connor Franklin kicked the ball against their lad and he has given a throw that led to a corner and that led to the opening goal.
"They then had the momentum. We were beaten for the first goal by a 40-50 yard diagonal ball and if you can't defend them at this level, then you are in trouble.
"And then we huffed and puffed and they gained momentum and gained a yard and we lost a yard.
"I have no complaints. We have given three goals away and I don't take a great deal of satisfaction that we have come out in the second half and won 1-0. "We have been beaten comfortably, 3-1."
The Reds boss had praise for central defender Michael Wylde who was thrown in at the deep end for his club league debut after just 15 minutes as a replacement for Chris Westwood who exited the game with a hamstring injury.
"Michael Wylde came out after no time at all and he has not played a full game since last season. He did well, but we put ourselves on the back foot. You can't come to places like this and give them a three goal start" added Law.
