Lessons not learned

Kent Messenger Maidstone - - FRONT PAGE -

Harry Wheeler said Maid­stone con­ceded three of the poor­est goals he’d seen in their de­feat by Soli­hull Moors. A week of prepa­ra­tion went out the win­dow as Moors led 2-0 in­side seven min­utes at the Gal­lagher Sta­dium. Danny Wright scored the first as Moors broke from a Stones cor­ner and Adi Yus­suf made it two af­ter Maid­stone missed the chance to clear. Blair Tur­gott’s 11th goal of the sea­son brought Maid­stone back into the game but a de­fen­sive mix-up in­volv­ing Lee Wor­gan, Alex Fin­ney and Seth Nana Twu­masi led to Moors’ sec­ond-half clincher. Man­ager Wheeler said: “They’re three of the poor­est goals I’ve seen at this level. “You give two up in the first seven min­utes you give peo­ple a head­start and that’s ex­actly what we did. “The man who scores the first one is mark­ing one of our play­ers in the box. “His de­sire to get for­ward was bet­ter than ours but as it goes out to the wide player, it’s writ­ten in big let­ters in the dress­ing room, keep him down the line. “First thing they do is let him come in­side. “We need to try and get them to keep ab­sorb­ing in­for­ma­tion. “If they ab­sorb the in­for­ma­tion early, they don’t score the first goal. “If they ab­sorb the in­for­ma­tion we con­stantly said about clear­ing your lines and not try­ing to play out in your own area, you don’t con­cede the sec­ond goal. “We could go on. They ab­sorb their in­for­ma­tion about drop­ping off and cov­er­ing round when some­one goes up for a header, they don’t con­cede the third goal. We’ve called all three of them.”
