Knaresborough Town suffered just their fourth defeat of the season last night as they went down 2-1 to Selby Town.
Gary Collier put the hosts in front on six minutes, then Selby doubled their lead two minutes later through Joseph Dale. Jack Carr got one back just before the break but Knaresborough huffed and puffed but could not muster any further goals.
Coach Gregg Anderson was disappointed with the loss, “Disappointing first 15 minute to concede two goals but then we settled in the game and started to dominate!
“We could of gone in at half-time in front if we did better with our good chances in front of goal. We must of had 10-15 corners/freekicks around the edge of the boxes, we should of capitalise more on some very good delivery’s from Dan Clayton and Tom Hesketh.
“Selby played deep in the 2nd half and only looked dangerous when we committed more men forward so the game got stretched. We had some half decent chances in the 2nd half but we could of been better all round in the final 3rd and making better decisions.
“Disappointed in losing the match as we huffed and puffed but we were pretty flat in all honest. Not surprising trying to get the players motivated after all our hard work for the first 38 games of the season, but that shouldn’t be any excuse from my players! We have another target to hit this season and we need to win our last 2 games to do that. Credit goes to Selby as they leave three players up and attack you with directness and speed, they got their noses in front and hold on to what they did to us in the first 15 minutes.”
