SIBSON: “We know where and why it wasn’t good enough…”

Fifteenth -placed Albion Sports edged their goal-fest Toolstation NCEL Premier Division local derby at third-placed Yorkshire Amateur last night when they came from 2-1 behind at the break to clinch the three points with a 5-4 win at the Southerns Stadium –and Ammers Joint Manager Neil Sibson didn’t mince his works when he reflected on his side’s performance after the interval, writes Colin Muncie.

Neil told the Bootiful Game “I’m obviously not happy with the result -but equally not happy with the second half performance, which was simply not good enough. We were a bit unfortunate with two key defenders having to leave the field injured. We went into the interval winning 2-1 with Albion not really bothering us too much. We lost our centre half with a head injury at half time and also our right back with an ankle injury -and from that point we seem to struggle. Credit to Albion they worked very hard tonight and they deserved the win”

“We just didn’t get going in the second half; that combined with some shocking defending “ Neil told us, hinting at a change of approach at the weekend. “ I feel for a few of the lads-and they know who they are, the ones that came out with some credit! We know where and why it wasn’t good enough in the second half -and it will be addressed in time for Saturday’s match at Harrogate”.

“The lads are back in tonight where we will address a few things. This squad is very capable and they will bounce back -I have every confidence”.
