We weren’t good enough”was Tommy Wright’s typically honest assessment after seeing his side come off second best against the Glassboys. “We were off the pace all over the park added to which I don’t think this Stourbridge side is as good as last year’s.
Clearly we missed Ivor who failed a late fitness test after getting whacked on the knee late on against Needham and we certainly missed Liam Hughes as well.
I’m gutted that not only have we conceded three goals but we were carved open up too many times and in the end 3-1 probably flattered us. It was disappointing to see the team fold as it did. It could have been worse and there’s plenty to work on in training on Thursday night.
I’ve no complaints about the sending off. The challenge was reckless and stupid and we’ve now got to deal with Luis being suspended for three games.
So we’ve got to pick up the pieces quick to be ready for Saturday. Hopefully Ivor will be back for that one and possibly Liam as well who will give us that physical presence we need up front.”
