Manager Rob Edwards was again left scratching his head following our first half performance against Accrington yesterday and he couldn’t believe we went on to lose the game effectively in the final ten minutes of the match.

Speaking to the Official Site after seeing us fight back from a goal down to take the lead through a brace by Baggie, the gaffer couldn’t believe we threw it all away at the death.

‘We’ve had so many leads and chucked them away and it’s driving me mad. I’m as frustrated as anyone. We didn’t play well in the first half, Accrington controlled the game, so the players got a bit at half time and they came out and did what we asked of them.’

But then having got ourselves level and into the lead we just didn’t defend the penalty box well enough, we kept on making the wrong decisions in his mind and we’ve given two goals away from nothing in effect.

Edwards goes on to say that part of the problem is at points we are still looking anxious in possession and we are rushing ourselves into the wrong decision instead of being composed but the biggest problem for him is that he feels we don’t play the game consistently when it comes to decision making and the focus turns in different situations.

‘Even before the goals there were strange decisions, you’ve got to make better decisions. You should play the game the same whether you’re winning 4-0 or losing 4-0.’

Ultimately he ends by saying we are continuing to learn the hard way for some reason and when we have an out to slow things down and relieve pressure, we don’t take them and just invite further pressure on and it’s something we have to sort out.
