“I keep saying the same things and it’s getting boring and all I can do is apologise” admitted a downbeat and frustrated Tommy Wright after seeing his side slip to defeat against the Waders.
“Ultimately the performances which we put in on Monday and again today weren’t good enough. We work on things in our training sessions and I keep expecting an improvement but nothing’s happening so I have to take responsibility for it.
A week ago we beat Rushden so I know we’re capable but on Monday we huffed and puffed and didn’t defend and it was the same today Three or four of us weren’t at the races and I can’t remember us testing their keeper at all.
For the opening ten minutes we looked decent but from then on we were flat. The penalty gave us a lifeline that we didn’t deserve and we then gifted them the equaliser inside a minute.
That’s poor game management, lack of concentration and leadership and really sloppy.
Chris Wreh didn’t start today as he looked jaded on Monday and also at training on Thursday and Nabil was champing at the bit to return. And similarly with the keepers – Elliott did well on Saturday but less so on Monday so I made the change.
A couple of new signings are on the horizon. We’ve made a couple of approaches and had a couple of conversations but nothing is definite yet.
Maybe I’ve been too loyal to one or two but we’ve got Luis Morrison and Linden Dovey coming back for next week which will help us at the back and give us a bit of experience as something’s missing at the moment.
We mustn’t be too glum. We’ve got more points than at this time last year but we are too inconsistent and we need to remedy that quickly.”
