Tough to take

Boss hurt by late equaliser

26 November 2019

Neal Ardley says drawing 2-2 with Boreham Wood on Tuesday night was ‘tough to take’.

Kyle Wootton’s brace set us up for victory with the minutes ticking away but a stoppage-time penalty, which saw Connell Rawlinson dismissed, meant we had to settle for a point.

And Ardley was frustrated that we didn’t see the game out.

“When you’ve lost two on the trot, you want to bounce back with three points and we deserved them tonight,” said the boss.

“I’m not happy with the way we played in the last 10 minutes because we were sprinting to take throws in and that’s not good game management.

“We got a couple of things wrong at the end and then the referee’s decision took it away from us.

“We’re all angry, frustrated and disappointed.”

The visitors had taken the lead inside a quarter of an hour, with Ardley critical of our start to the game but pleased with how we stepped things up.

“We were nervous for 20 minutes and the defeats played a part there,” he added.

“Then we got going, got ourselves out of it and were exceptional at times but we should’ve put the game to bed.

“We’re having a tough time picking up points but, against a good team, some of our play was excellent.”
