LAW: PLAY-OFFS ARE OVER FOR US
Monday Apr 14, 2014
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law was in realistic mood about the Reds' play-off chances following the 2-1 defeat at Woking.
Asked if it was possibly the end of a realistic Reds challenge to finish in the top five, Law said: "l've looked at the results and l've said to the players it's going to be difficult, especially with the poor goals we're conceding and yes, l would have thought so when you look at the teams that are in there now.
"Gateshead and Grimsby are scoring goals and not letting them in and the last two games we've let six poor goals in.
"l will try to motivate the players for Good Friday's game against Grimsby - we're in front of the cameras again and we don't want another performance like against Halifax when we got dominated in that game."
With regards to the defeat in Surrey, Law was once again left to bemoan more goals conceded.
"When you make poor decisions and defend like that you're not going to be winning anything and you're not going to be at the other end of the table where you want to be" he reflected.
"To be fair at half-time we should have gone in two up - we've come out the second half and as long as it's only one they're in it and to be fair to them they've come out second half and had a go.
"The loss of Fenton was a blow, and from then we haven't been able to cope with them to be fair.
"We were in front and they've nothing to lose and they've gone for it and they've chucked everything at us and l thought we'd weathered it but it wasn't to be."
