Macc v Welling (Sat, 3pm)

gone in two or three goals up.

“Then in the sec­ond half we played well up un­til they scored and they done us with a sucker punch re­ally.

“The cor­ner came in and they re­acted bet­ter to the sec­ond ball, that’s some­thing we ob­vi­ously need to im­prove on.

“When we started to chase the game we strug­gled to con­trol it like we did in the first half. It’s dis­ap­point­ing but I’m very pleased with how we played and the chances we cre­ated in the first half.”

Askey was more than happy with his team’s per­for­mance and the way they ap­proached the game, so to be edged out in a closely con­tested game left him feel­ing dis­ap­pointed.

“I thought

Kris­tian (Dennis) was ex­cel­lent, es­pe­cially in the first half. The sys­tem we played suited us, we passed it, moved them about and they couldn’t get near us.

“We cre­ated chances that we should’ve scored from and that’s the big­gest dis­ap­point­ment, get­ting into those po­si­tions and to miss those chances is crim­i­nal re­ally, but the main thing is that we cre­ated them.”
