PRAISE FOR CONTRIBUTION OF FANS
DESPITE another home defeat, Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law feels his side will be ok if they continue to match the level of display they showed in the game against Macclesfield Town.
"I thought it was a decent enough performance, playing against good, strong opposition. They are going to be there or thereabouts in the play-offs at the end of the season" reflected Law.
"I think it has taken a dubious decision for the winner from the referee for a free kick, which we feel wasn't.
"Two minutes before that there is an even bigger decision over a penalty which we didn't get, then all of a sudden he sees that one.
"To be fair, we are disappointed that we have lost to two set plays. In general play I don't think we were in any danger and there wasn't a lot in it. We have lost out to a good side.
"It is difficult. We are trying to find a way to play to stay in games. We did that Tuesday and we have done it again today.
"We lost the first header on the first one [goal] when Paul Clayton has lost his man. The second one, Darran Kempson has not reacted to second ball with Waide Fairhurst. The ball has come in, hit the post and the striker has reacted quicker than the defender because he wants to score the goal.
"That's where we have come undone. In general play I don't think there is a deal in it. We have done ok.
"I thought we have done well enough and as long as we keep playing with that effort and endeavour we will be ok".
Law also had praise for the fans who he felt helped his side with their backing. "I would like to thank the fans for their good and positive support throughout the game. It really does make a difference and is very much appreciated by myself, Russ and the players" ended the Reds boss.
