We Didn't Take Our Chances - Tis

Manager Paul Tisdale has said that we simply wasted too many opportunities in the game against Chesterfield last Saturday.

A two nil loss could've been avoided had we been more clinical in the box and done more with the chances that we did create over the 90 minutes, and Tisdale explained to the Official Site that for him he didn't feel we were composed enough during the game.

'We didn't take our moments in the first half. We didn't show enough composure or we rushed things - we were jumpy with our decisions. that's really where we missed our chance, about four or five times in the first half the ball was at our feet in the penalty box and with them under press, and we didn't take those moments at all and show enough class.'

The difference for the gaffer was that Chesterfield showed that composure and were clinical when their chances came along.

Disappointingly for the gaffer he felt we played really well otherwise in the first half, we looked fluid and dangerous and especially given the conditions we were knocking the ball around well and making the right decisions in his mind, but we blew it by not starting quickly enough in the second period and it's happened a few times now and he knows it's something that needs to be addressed, because slipping like we did and going one nil behind means everything we did in the first half counts for nothing.

Leaving him sat there doing the after match interviews talking about mistakes and the things we did wrong, instead of the things we did right but failed to build appropriately on.

Midfielder Arron Davies also commented on our lack of finishing when he spoke following the game, saying we were good in the first period and all the players were looking forward to building on that in the second half, but conceding how we did put a nail in the plan because we then had to chase more to try and get back in the game.

'It was a killer blow to concede so early, and then it was a difficult game to get back into. We were probably the better team but we didn't work their keeper enough. I thought we did have them on the back foot, but their goalkeeper has probably gone away thinking he's had a fairly easy night.'

Sums it up quite well doesn't it.

One consolation for Davies comes from how fixtures fall at this time of year because he knows the players won't have long to sulk about this result, because it's on to the next one quite quickly and it's a good chance to put this loss behind us and get back to winning ways.
