Manager Rob Edwards has again talked about our lack of a cutting edge following the two nil defeat to Bury at the weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site after two second half goals from the opposition, the manager explained.

‘The players have given everything, the only think I’m critical about is our cutting edge. We didn’t work their goalkeeper enough. Jason had a shot and brought a good save from him, but we weren’t clinical enough in the box.’

Edwards goes on to say that it’s really a case of the same old story from the last four or five games as we’ve had very similar numbers of chances to the opposition but we aren’t taking them and it’s costing us and we’ve lost again.

‘I’m the most frustrated man in this ground, I can guarantee that. We’ll turn it around. We played a different way and I enjoyed it for an hour but then the game went away from us, we’re getting punished at set pieces and don’t look like scoring at ours but it’s not from a lack of work on them.’

Edwards adds that he feels in the middle of the park we are doing pretty well, but it’s at each ends in the penalty boxes we aren’t doing ourselves justice at the minute and obviously it’s costing us.

With Cole Stockton missing from the game through injury, Edwards also revealed that we could be without his services for the next fortnight as the player has picked up a sore pelvis and Eliot Richards hadn’t trained all week either.

In the case of on loan Matthias Fanimo, he has now returned to West Ham as the gaffer admits it just didn’t work out as a deal and he wasn’t in his plans.
