Warne please by battling perfomance

“I thought we were excellent. We created some good chances in the first half, I thought our game plan was really good but obviously the sending-offs changed the game but when it was 11 v 11, we were the better team."Warne told the clubs official website

“It’s disappointing that we conceded from a cross but on another day, we could have got a draw and they could have come away as heroes and I’m disappointed for them because I thought they deserved that."

“The best way to sum up the game was that the ball went out in the 93rdminute of the game and their fans did not want to give it back to us.”

“We have got a good group. They are really positive about their performance today and so they should be, I want them to go home and be proud of what they tried to do and get confidence from it. Their performance was excellent and it’s disappointing not to come away with anything."

“They’ll be tired obviously, but they will lick their wounds as we have a big game on Tuesday.

“I would love to have a full echelon of players available but I won’t cry about it, as it gives an opportunity to other players to start. I’m not overly concerned about that.”
