Burnett Left Disappointed Again Following Draw

Manager Wayne Burnett was again left disappointed following the draw against Morecambe on Saturday because yet again another late goal has cost us all three points and the win.

Speaking to the Official Site following the one all draw, Burnett said that overall he was pleased with the one we played, especially the first half performance, but he can't feel anything but bitter disappointment again following their equaliser a minute from time.

'I was pleased with the first half performance, we played reasonably well and created the better chances at the time, but we couldn't find that first goal.'

We did obviously get the breakthrough shortly into the second half with a penalty from Medy Elito and the gaffer credited his strength of character and attitude as he's always one of the first to offer himself up for spot kicks irrespective of the pressure they bring, and he thinks he again converted it superbly.

With that said he did admit that he thought the award of the penalty was a bit harsh but sometimes in football they go for you and at least it didn't go against us.

Unfortunately all our hard work and endeavour on the day counted for only a point when they found the net themselves and for Burnett it left him feeling 'terrible' again.

'It's a terrible feeling, you go so far and work so hard and then you concede at such a late time. We have to understand the important of game management and manage games better.'

Burnett says it's not a criticism that can be thrown at only the defenders, it falls on everybody on the pitch to manage themselves better, manage our possession and control of games and do more as a match is closing out and we don't have the ball so this doesn't keep happening to us.

We are however four unbeaten now following the Plymouth defeat and sit relatively comfortably in 13th place in the league and that in itself is a good improvement given where many expected us to be this campaign. Just a shame so many draws of late who stunted our season when we could've been higher in League Two.
