Manager Alan Knill gave an honest assessment following our three nil loss to York yesterday, and admitted that if you perform like that you have to take the jeers on the chin.

Speaking to the Official Site following the match, Knill admitted that whilst the first half was reasonably tight and balanced, in the second half we conceded a soft opening goal and never managed to get back on track.

‘If you lose 3-0 at home, you have to accept the criticism and we’re open to criticism from yesterday. Goals change games and we switched off three times.’

Knill says that when you completely fail to execute what had been working on and talked about, then both he as a manager and the players just have to hold their hands up and apologise for the showing. It doesn’t mean they wanted it to happen, they just – between them – didn’t do enough to stop it, and that isn’t good enough.

Knill will no doubt try and use it to his advantage in training though as it stands as the perfect reason why no team should lose three nil at home, and in a game finally balanced that will hinge on who gets the opening goal, when we are at home it simply has to be us in the future.

Anything else just isn’t acceptable.
