LAW: WE ARE STILL ALIVE
Sunday Apr 19, 2015
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law took the positives from Saturday's crucial relegation game after seeing his side held to a 2-2 draw by ten-man Welling United at the Impact Arena on Saturday.
"We set off really well - we guessed what shape they were playing and l think we were set up for it and coped with it well, but l think that [the sending off] was the worst thing that could have happened, because they were down to ten men and then we struggled" he reflected.
"We tried that little bit extra - having an extra touch, running with the ball - it didn't work - and we defended awfully. We must not kid ourselves - Tom Flynn's made two great saves late on.
"Looking at it on a positive slant - it's a point, and it gives us another chance next week, but we going to have to go to Bristol and get a win, or a point if the other result goes our way - but we're still alive, still breathing and we'll take it to the last game.
"Tom Shaw's had a fantastic chance - if that goes in it's all over. l'm pleased for (Massiah) McDonald - he's come on and got the equaliser and then we chucked everything at it - we threw everything that we had at it.
"Give Welling some credit - they've done really well of late - they've come here and played the majority of the game with ten men and obviously they are going to be a lot happier with the result than we are."
