“It was two points dropped”

The frustration and disappointment of seeing his side fail to capitalise on all but one of the numerous chances they created against West Allotment on Tuesday night was clear to see when Bay manager Liam McIvor spoke after the 1-1 draw at East Palmersville.

Summing up the game he said it was “Two points dropped, it’s the only way to put it. We dominated it. It was the story of the night unfortunately in front of goal. Too many missed chances. When you want to win games you can’t afford to miss chances and in the first 20 minutes we should have been 3 or 4 up and out of sight.

"They’ve come back into it, scored a goal but the second half was just all one way. Even so, it should have been sewn up before half time.

“It was a pretty comfortable night if I’m honest, but you’ve got to punish teams when you’re on top for so long and we haven’t tonight in front of goal. Everything else was brilliant but in front of goal it wasn’t there tonight. The top and bottom of it is, if you want to win games you’ve got to put the ball in the net, it’s the most important part of games.

“I don’t think the conditions were any different to what it’s been lately, a bit sticky. Last Tuesday when we won 7-2 at home it was exactly the same. The pitches aren’t a problem, we need games and West Allotment did their best to get the game on to be fair.”

Looking ahead to Saturday’s visit to Boro Rangers, Whitley’s first ever game against the Middlesbrough side, which will be played on a 3G surface, he added “it’ll be a tough game. We’ll need to pick ourselves up and dust ourselves down and go again.“
