LAW: WE REALISE WHAT WE ARE GOOD AT
Sunday Feb 14, 2016
After seeing his side extend their unbeaten run to ten games in all competitions, Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law says his side have realised what it takes to put results together.
Law's side came from a goal down at half-time at FC United of Manchester to win 3-1 on Saturday, a result which also extended the Reds' unbeaten run in the Vanarama National League North to eight games.
"I think the first half the fact we'd not played for two weeks has probably showed a bit . We were disappointed to have come in 1-0 at half-time. It was a poor bit of play on our behalf just before the whistle. Up to that, it was a pretty even game l thought, neither side l think deserved to be in front" reflected Law.
"But we came in and changed it around a little bit, had a few words at half-time and l think we came out a lot livelier, a lot more determined, got to the ball, (were) a bit snappier and we could have won the game more than comfortable in the end.
"We had been playing at about 60 per cent, just running alongside them - (but) we're not one of those teams that are good at doing that. We can't sit off and work things out, play that slow, probably tactical old manny type of game.
"l think we've got to be up and at teams - snapping into things - l thought we did that when we came out second half showing a lot more energy, won a lot more second ball, won a lot more first ball and all of a sudden (Jamie) Jackson's coming long and it changed the game for us.
"He did well at Curzon because he was running away from people and he's done it here again today. All of a sudden he's getting it and he's running away - he's got their right back on a booking - l think their right midfielder and central midfielder have been booked for bringing him down because they can't live with his pace and l felt quite sorry for him because he's got through there and done really well for Bradley's goal and deserved the goal himself.
"We've got things the right way round and realised what we're good at - if we keep doing that, keep plugging away and, who knows, we might make it 15 games unbeaten" ended Law.
