LAW: WE GOT WHAT WE DESERVED . . . NOTHING
Sunday Oct 4, 2015
Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law says his players got what they deserved after Saturday's 3-1 home defeat against Stalybridge Celtic.
The Reds dominated the first half but after failing to take advantage of their superiority, they conceded two goals in the second half against a visiting side who had far better movement up front.
Law reflected: "It is just really, really disappointing. I think we started the game well and showed that we could possibly be the better team.
"Then we started having too many touches, we didn't shift the ball quick enough.
"Credit to them, they stuck at it and ground away at us. Really at the end of the game we got what we deserved which was nothing.
"Fair play to Liam Watson and his players, we have probably got a bit 'out-physicalled' today.
"It is alright having all the ability in the world but if you can't stand up to it you are going to come unstuck and that is what we have done today.
"We have been bullied if you want, but I think a lot of it was our own downfall because as I say we started brightly and then all of a sudden we need too many touches, we are bringing them on and we get ourselves into a position, or a bit of a hole if you like and then we haven't got the character or the know-how to get out of it" ended Law.
