Burnett We Wasted Too Many Chances

Manager Wayne Burnett couldn't hide his disappointment following the defeat to York because he knows we had the chances to send the game in another direction.

Ahead of the game all the press was about continuing our winning start to 2014 and building on the Wimbledon victory and remaining unbeaten, but after wasting a number of glorious chances in the match, that soon went out the window as York punished us.

Speaking to the press at full time the gaffer was left with no alternative but to wonder 'what if' had we managed to convert a few more of the chances we created over 90 minutes, let alone what might have been had we taken our early chances in the game before they got a foothold on it.

'I didn't see the result coming, but goals change games and that's exactly what has happened. I'm actually distraught if I'm being honest. I feel absolutely gutted because in the first half we could have been two or three up.'

But we weren't and they then capitalised on a mistake at our end and we were chasing the game.

One question Burnett admits asking himself is whether he asked too much over this period from the players an whether he should've rotated the team more then he did to rest people at points so they were fresher, but other teams ask the same questions when results don't go for them and they have to put up with the fixtures falling like this as well, so he's just left flat and he says the most disappointed he's actually been in a long time because he really feels we should've won the game, let alone come out with a point from it.

On to the next one where hopefully the players won't make the same mistakes again, and the gaffer won't quite be as embarrassed as he was with some of the passages of play and the errors we were making on the day.
