It wasnt out day - Warne

 “We have got a target on our backs now in being top of the league. I said to the lads before the game that it had the sort of atmosphere of a play-off, ‘carnival’ or promotion game and I said to the lads that they have not achieved anything."

“In the first half, we were really good and it was quite an open game. But we did not take our chances in the first half and they  definitely started better than us in the second half and I was disappointed with that and we did not have enough composure on the ball and control.

“It wasn’t our day. We didn’t get the crucial first goal and they did and then it just became a frustrating afternoon. “It did not feel like we had the rub of the green we have had in recent weeks. But when we have been winning games, I have never said we have been amazing in them and our little bit of lady luck probably ran out.”

“I was disappointed with the goal. I am not here to criticise my players, but it was disappointing.

“Lads are going to make mistakes, they are not robots. 

“We came here with a strong squad and there were no injuries or dreaded Covid in the camp. But we came up against a good Accrington who maybe played the conditions better than us and took their best chance of the game and fair play to them.”

“They have had a great run, but they need to get better and we are going to have some really tough games that we need to take our chances in and this does feel like a wasted opportunity." Warne added.
