Manager David Flitcroft was left to rue our missed opportunities again in the match against Dagenham and Redbridge as despite coming out with a point he feels we were unlucky not to have scored five goals in the match.
Speaking to the press following the game that saw us have over double the amount of chances both on and off target as our opposition, the gaffer explained.
'I found out a bit more about my team. We had to play a certain way, with a tempo against a very good team, a potent team offensively. Going forward there was force and fury but, again, we created chances and haven't finished them off.'
The gaffer goes on to say that it's all about them fine margins again, and at the moment the margins for us are seeing the efforts go wide whereas the tiniest tweak would see them on target and inside the woodwork and that's what we have to keep working hard towards.
He credits their keeper for some of the saves he pulled off, but he knows had we been able to build on the opener and not concede so quickly after, it could've been game over and the flood gates may have opened for us.
'We played with energy and purpose and on another day, I genuinely believe we could've scored five goals.'
What he can't criticise is the way the team stuck to the game plan, the way they approached and executed the game and nor can he criticise their energy and the desire they showed to get three points - we just need that bit of luck in front of the net to swing a game our way in a more meaningful manner.
finishing the interview by saying that there would be plenty of twists and turns left in the league in the remaining games, he knows we are decently placed and a point is by no means a disaster as it keeps our head above those below us and come the end of the season that's all we need to ensure for his first partial year in charge.
