LAMBS’ player-manager, Andy Morrell, has given his verdict on our 5-0 defeat at FC Halifax Town in the first round of the FA Trophy...
“We just didn’t perform in the opening period,” he admitted. “I can’t put my finger on why but we were bullied and fell well below the standards that we have come to expect.
“We gave away some poor goals and were far too open for my liking.
“Our hosts were physically strong and we didn’t deal with it well enough. That said, we started the second half brightly and had a decent tempo to our play.
“But the third goal killed us and after that it was a case of damage limitation. 5-0 flattered them but they deserved to go through.
“We now have to pick ourselves up and be ready to go again for our next game.”
