James Tose after Abbey Hulton

“If We Are Not Winning-We’re Disappointed”

I spoke to City boss James Tose after his side drew at Abbey Hulton away. This is what he had to say on the game:

“Definitely two points dropped today! We had enough chances to win two or three games, especially early doors in the first half. We hit the woodwork twice, and had a few one-on-one chances which may have went in on another day, but we just didn’t put them away.”

“I was just a bit disappointed with the result to be honest. Last season we would have came away happy with a point, but now we have a different outlook and want to go into every game looking for the win. It’s a positive that we are creating chances, but another individual mistake was the negative today. Still, not taking the chances has cost us the three points.”

“I still think that we are missing that clinical goalscorer, which may be a Michael Reed or a Ryan Errington. We needed three or four chances to score when we should normally need only one or two to find the net. Its hard to win games like this when you don’t have someone like them.”

“All in all, the squad is getting stronger and we’re not lacking much now. Its better that we are coming away from home and if we aren’t winning, we are disappointed with that. Its just a case of moving on to Wednesday night at Holker, but we still are three unbeaten.”

“We are looking to get three points on Wednesday night, by no means are we a full strength squad yet, I think when we get the big players back-We’ll push on. Its refreshing having a full squad though, it gives us good options off the bench. In particular, Hugh Hodgson made a difference when he came on.”

“He was holding the ball well and giving us a platform to try and create something from. The chances we created in the second half came through him which was pleasing to see.”

“Rob McCartney was a threat all game today, he went through on goal at one point and could have squared it to Kyle, but he shot. It came out to him-hit Rob and then fell to Kyle, but went under his foot. That summed up our day today, we created the chance but failed with the end product.”
