LAWRIE MCKINNA

Australian Four Four Two - - GRAND FINAL FEVER -

Mariners coach

We should have been up two or three nil up in the first half. We missed chance af­ter chance. It was guar­an­teed Syd­ney were go­ing to come back into it. And then the old sucker punch in the sec­ond half. Dwight Yorke had too much space at the edge of the box. I think An­drew Clark and Noel Spencer tried closing him down but it was too late. I was gut­ted then be­cause we had started the game so well. I think Ian Crook (Syd­ney as­sis­tant coach) even said at half-time that Syd­ney should have been down a cou­ple of goals. And when a team get off the hook, then take the lead, it’s very hard to change that mo­men­tum.
