Having fielded Harworth Colliery Manager Lee Needham’s take on last night’s 4-3 win over Rossington Main in Toolstation NCEL Division One, Main’s manager Duncan Milligan felt that more efficient finishing from the home side clinched the three points in a frenetic clash at Scrooby Road, writes Colin Muncie.
Duncan told the Bootiful Game “It was a disappointing and frustrating evening to be honest; I’ve no doubt that Harworth played with more a passion and drive that ultimately won them the points. Their clinical edge in front of goal has won them three points and we wish them well for the rest of the season. From our point of view we’ve played to our capabilities for a one third of the game and created numerous opportunities that we have to start taking -especially with the quality of forwards we have at our disposal “
Duncan isn’t convinced that his side are getting the rub of the green right now . “We need a ball to drop our way which is not happening at the moment” he said “ and that will act as a catalyst to uplift our confidence!”
Harworth’s Lee Needham had made reference to a key refereeing decision last night in his piece for the Bootiful Game, and Duncan was similarly aggrieved “As I see that my fellow manager has mentioned the officials after last night’s game, I will briefly say that we really need to start protecting our players -and the standard of officiating needs to improve” he said.
“We’ve lost a player to a broken cheekbone from an elbow by an opposing player- without even being awarded a free kick!”
