Frus­tra­tion for coach Hal­lett and Albion

Western Morning News (Saturday) - - Football Sport - BY TERRI REEVES

A dis­ap­point­ing last-minute penalty for Dar­ling­ton lost the game for Ply­mouth Albion last Satur­day – so the team are de­ter­mined to end their three­game los­ing streak at Brick­fields when old friends Ross­lyn Park are the vis­i­tors to­day.

Head coach Kieran Hal­lett was happy with the ini­tial start from Albion at Dar­ling­ton – and be­ing 12-0 up should have put them in with a good chance of tak­ing the points. But a late penalty for Dar­ling­ton made the re­sult a very dis­ap­point­ing one.

Hal­lett said: “It’s ex­tremely frus­trat­ing that we have only won four games out of 11 – but the games we have lost have been close.

“We need some bet­ter de­ci­sion mak­ing at times to try and cap­i­talise when we have op­por­tu­ni­ties.

“We’re re­ally not a mil­lion miles away. We know we are not play­ing as god as we can, we are in these games right to the death and it’s only go­ing to take a lit­tle bit of fine de­tail here and there to turn the nar­row losses into wins.

“A month ago our dis­ci­pline and line-outs were re­ally poor, but in the last three games they have been re­ally good, so we are ready for the game on Satur­day and will be try­ing to put our com­plete per­for­mance to­gether. We will ap­proach it in the same way as we al­ways do. I’m not too both­ered as to who is where in the league.

“Ev­ery game we have been in has been tight and I don’t doubt that it will carry on this way for the sea­son.”

Ross­lyn Park are cur­rently sixth in Na­tional League One and only ten points ahead of Albion, No one team is run­ning away with the league yet.

Hal­lett added: “We have more play­ers avail­able to us this week, and it’s dif­fi­cult for us to chop and change the team much when the play­ers are not do­ing an aw­ful lot wrong.”
