'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Burnett Rues Missed Opportunities

Manager Wayne Burnett has said that we just wasted too many chances in the game against Accrington Stanley in midweek.

A scoreless draw did more for them than it did for us and although it would be wrong to say they didn't maybe edge the first half, we certainly had the second half and should've made a lot more of the chances we created, so the gaffer was disappointed to come out with a share of the spoils instead of all three.

Speaking to the press following the game, Burnett explained that even though we are on a semi decent run that has seen us go unbeaten in seven games, he feels we should've picked up more victories along the way, and certainly in the Accrington game.

'We created the better of the chances and I'm surprised we didn't stick at least one of them away. Accrington have been doing well lately and we knew it would be tough but we got in behind them a few times and we probably should've done better.'

The gaffer goes on to say that especially after a game like that where he feels we should've had more from it, it's a case of taking the positives and moving forward. It's another clean sheet, we created chances to win the game and we defended well, and of course we have continued our unbeaten run which is important, but it would be better with more wins and that kind of goes without saying.

'Perhaps it was just one of those nights for us in the end.'

First team coach Darren Currie also offered his thoughts on the game when speaking to the official site.

He was also very frustrated that we couldn't make the most of our chances on the night, but he acknowledges neither could the opposition.

"If I'm honest I don't think the team really got going. I don't like to use excuses but there may have been tiredness involved. We've had a lot of travelling and put a lot of effort in and I think that showed."

Of course, like Burnett, one thing to take from it was our defensive showing and Currie was certainly not going to ignore that adding that Accrington were lively upfront, but we dealt with them well and limited their opportunities, so we can take that into the next game and then hopefully be a bit more lively ourselves - or a bit more clinical - upfront in the next game.
