THE LAST WORD: LAW LAMENTS DROPPED POINTS
Sunday Oct 28, 2012
Alfreton Town boss Nicky Law was a frustrated man after seeing his side let AFC Telford United off the hook in a 1-1 draw at the Impact Arena on Saturday.
The Reds boss reflected:
"The game should have been over and done at half-time. What happened to us second half I do not know.
If you saw the stats first half, we have had ten shots, six on target and the game should have been won in that first half.
We have shown again that we haven't got what we need and that is that, I don't know, I will use a name, that Liam Hearn if you want, that we had before. Ben Tomlinson looks something like and is getting there now, but other than that, we just haven't got the goals we need to kill teams off.
That's not the first game this year that we should have been comfortably in front and as well as that game, you come out for the second half and you are just that one mistake and that one goal, and what a goal from their lad, you are one goal away from letting them back in it.
They have come out for that second half with hope when the game should have been over and done with all due respect, and credit to them for doing that, they have come out for that second half and had a go.
Unfortunately, we came out second half, the ball has gone up to the front, we are continually giving away fouls away or we are offside, pressure mounts and you then start making the wrong decisions and it starts playing with your mind. The second half wasn't good if I am honest.
Having said that, I still think we had chances at the end to win it. How many chances do you want?
I would be concerned if we were not creating chances. We are creating that many chances and I am saying nothing wrong against Telford when I say this, but we absolutely dominated a team sat in eighth spot. I am saying the same old things all the time, we need to put the ball in the net. We have had enough chances to win two games today."
