Kidd: Frustrated with the Draw

17 March 2015

Youth manager, Ryan Kidd, spoke of his frustration about Saturday’s draw against Carlisle United.

Ryan Kidd, felt that his side should have got more out of the match on Saturday against Carlisle United.

He feels that the team should have performed better, especially as the the Cumbrians set-up exactly how they were expecting.

Talking after the match, Ryan Kidd said: “I’m frustrated today more than anything. I think if you were to look at possession stats, I reckon we’d probably be at 70%.

“We tried to have a game plan this week to counter what they were trying to did, and they set-up as we thought.

“I just told the lads that the biggest learning curve today, is that when you have a plan during the week and you work on it, it’s got to transfer into the game.

“I think they got over emotional in the game today, and thought about how to go around it and work it. 

“We did work the ball well at times, getting in good areas, but we’ve just not had enough quality to break them down in the final third.”

Ryan believes that with the chances his team created during the match, they should have put the game to bed instead of keeping it open for Carlisle to get something out of it 

He explained: “It doesn’t matter where teams are in the league, if you are not quite right, you will get punished. They only really had two clear cut chances in the game and they got a penalty out of nothing.

“However, we got ourselves into that situation by not being clinical enough. If you take your chances, you can then put the game to bed and we never did that.

“Instead we left it in the balance, I suppose we responded by getting a goal. But I didn’t see enough endeavour from the lads today to go and get that win.”
