YOUNG Brewers coach Sam Rose was left frustrated after the performance at Chesterfield on Saturday Saturday in light of the 1-0 defeat.
The Under-18s side conceded late in the first-half and failed to hit-back, condemning the Young Brewers to defeat against a physical Spireites outfit. Chances were few and far between throughout, although some of the football was played with real vigour.
“Overall, we are disappointed to lose the game. I thought we did well in parts, I’m encouraged by that, but we are all frustrated by the result.
“I thought that we were the better side. I think throughout the game we played some good football and matched the physicality of Chesterfield and their long-ball style. The goal changed the momentum before half time and from then on Chesterfield defended well. We needed a good save late in the game to stay in the game, however overall we were on top but didn’t capitalise on getting in some good positions.”
Having failed to score in their last two outings against Scunthorpe and Chesterfield, the side will be keen to do better in front of goal.
“In terms of opportunities to score goals, we created too few. Maybe one or two shots-on-target and half chances – this is never enough to win a game of football. So for all of the ball we had in and around the box we were never really creating anything that could help us get back into the game. We haven’t scored in the last 2 league games but we have got in to good scoring positions. It’s up to the players to put those chances away if we are to put games to bed when we are on top.”
The Young Brewers have the chance to prepare this week before facing Bradford on Friday.
