‘Early nerves but we de­served win’

Kentish Express Ashford & District - - Kent Reliance Senior Trophy Final Special -

Danny Lye felt his team suf­fered from ‘cup fi­nal fever’ in the early stages of Sun­day’s game but says they were de­serv­ing win­ners.

The 36-year-old United player-boss said: “You al­ways get a bit of cup fi­nal fever and peo­ple deal with it in dif­fer­ent ways.

“I don’t re­ally do nerves but you don’t know what the boys are feel­ing. They say they’re all right but they might be a bit ner­vous.

“I think the (Cray) goal knocked the stuff­ing out of us a lit­tle bit and be­cause of that, we were a bit slow, a bit lethar­gic.

“I said to them ‘Who’s go­ing to change it? Who’s go­ing to give us that lit­tle bit of fire that we need and the boys did it sec­ond half.

“They (Cray) tried to frus­trate us – they had their game plan – but it was just a case of mak­ing sure we did not con­cede any sloppy goals and mak­ing sure we were still cre­at­ing chances, which we did.”
