Speaking to the clubs official website, the boss admitted that plans with through the window when Will Vaulks recieved a 28th minute red card; “The sending off has a massive impact on the game, To go down to 10 men with so long to go was a big blow for us. We wanted to keep it to one-nil for as long as possible and then have a right go in the last 15. We tried to frustrate them and I’m really proud of how we played and how hard the players’ worked.”
“I knew we would have to ride the storm, at the start, and I know they always like to go wide and we had a sitting midfielder to try and smother that, Obviously to concede off a set-piece was disappointing. They blocked our man in the box, which they see some weeks’ and some they don’t but it was a good finish."
“However, in some ways, it took the handbrake off the lads and they really got into the game and caused a threat and Tayls caused them all sorts of problems on the right wing and I thought our play deserved a goal."
“Unfortunately, the red card spoiled the game. I thought we were in the ascendancy and looked a threat at that point. I think Will gave the ball away. He’s keen to get it back but he’s gone to ground. I thought it was on the side of harsh. I thought it was a strong yellow. I didn’t think it was a red, but I’m biased and I haven’t seen it back. It’s unfortunate for us because Will has been amazing for us.”
