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

Flitcroft Left Frustrated

Manager David Flitcroft was left seriously frustrated as Bury failed to break down ten man Accrington Stanley.

Accrington were reduced to ten men after 30 minutes of the game, and only managed one shot all game, whereas we had a host of efforts on target but just couldn't find a way past their goalkeeper.

Speaking to the press following the match, Flitcroft wasn't angry or disappointed, but he was left frustrated as it was a good chance for maximum points.

'It's a point and a clean sheet, but the overall feeling is frustration. The sending off killed the tempo of the game and it didn't suit us. We did everything to score but you have got to give Accrington credit as they defended resolutely.'

Flitcroft says otherwise we did everything right, we dominated as we should've with the man advantage, and we dictated the game in possession but he felt we lacked a certain 'streetwise and savvy' nature to us and in some ways were predictable in how we approached the hour that they had reduced numbers, as there is more than one way to win the game and we weren't clever enough.

'I am seeing improvement but we've got to be more creative.'

With all that said though, it has been a while since we last played and Flitcroft acknowledged that we were a little rusty, so maybe that lack of sharpness - especially with the number of chances we did have - played a significant part in us not being more clinical.
