MANAGER'S VERDICT: WYCOMBE

6 October 2018

NIGEL Clough was frustrated with mistakes at both end of the pitch which resulted in a defeat at Wycombe.

The Brewers lost 2-1 despite dominating the game for long periods. A penalty and a headed goal from Adebayo Akinfenwa was enough to win the game for the home side, despite a second half onslaught from Albion after a Marvin Sordell goal.

The Brewers manager said: "We started well and apart from the period around their goals we controlled the game.

"Kyle McFadzean gave a ridiculous penalty away and the game changed from there for the rest of the first half. After that we got a goal back and had numerous opportunities to get an equaliser.

"When you are playing a team on October 6 that hasn't won at home and you give them two goals it gives them a massive lift. You saw a wave of relief go all round their ground and then they defended like their lives depended on it in the second half.

"But over the course of the game to dominate for so long and create so many chances we should be winning these games. We have had 50 chances over the last week and have two goals and thereby lies the problem.

"There are so many good things in the overall performances but until they cut out those silly little things there is no point in doing the good things."

Scott Fraser was taken off at half-time as Albion shuffled the pack.

Clough said: "He has a had a few knocks and was a bit below par and we went 4-4-2. Jake Hesketh got a whack as well and we had to change it again. But we finished with Cole, Akins, Sordell and Boyce all on the pitch. There should have been enough there to go and get that equaliser."
