Manager Rob Edwards was again left frustrated at full time following our display in the one nil loss to Carlisle at the weekend.

Speaking to the Official Site following the full time whistle at Brunton Park, the manager explained.

‘I was disappointed with the performance, we tried to go with two striker and didn’t have as much of the ball and it was a scrappy performance. We had two side players to help the full back and the crosses shouldn’t be coming in to our area. We worked at it in midweek but there were too many crosses coming in. We’ve missed chances in the last four or five games and that’s why you lose. A set piece has cost us last week and cost us this week. It’s tough at the moment.’

Edwards goes on to say he knows he’s asking youngsters to learn on the fly and they really are learning on the ‘job’ so to speak, but this is where he needs our experienced players to really step up to the plate and help them through the 90 minutes.

‘Just before we conceded we had a free kick and took it short. It was an opportunity to put the ball in the box and put the pressure on them but we made the wrong call. We had our chances at 0-0 but our confidence is wafer thin at the moment and when we went a goal down you could see the players get anxious.’

The gaffer ended his initial after match interview by commenting that he looked in the programme and noticed the club had lost the same game last season 4-1 so clearly we’ve been losing games for way to long and it’s unfortunately a habit we seem to be in and it’s a habit that needs to change quickly.
