GILL: “It’s my fault for letting the game slip away!”

On the face of it, a 2-2 draw with Bottesford should have been a good result for Bill Gill’s Hall Road Rangers, but after leading 2-0 at the break, it’s fair to say he wasn’t best pleased.

“I saw where they were affecting the game and didn’t react to that. It’s easy to point the finger at players, but tactically it’s my job to set them up right; I should have changed shape when I realised that at the break, but for whatever reason I didn’t.”

“I will learn from that.”

Scorer of Ranger’s first goal Reggie Waud was honest in his assessment. “Personally I think as a squad we were poor, and didn’t create enough chances. The ball was coming back at us due to silly free kicks and their quality from free kicks was top class.”

“It’s hard for the lads as we continue to let teams back in the game, the worst part of it was been 2-0 up and playing the worst I’ve probably seen the squad play, then to draw 2-2 from more set pieces – was gutting for all of us.”

Connor Harman put Rangers 2-0 up just before the break and added,
“frustrating game in all fairness. Usually a point against Bottesford is a good point but obviously in the circumstances we are in, we could look back on this game and say it’s been 2 points dropped after been 2-0 up at half-time.”

“We need to take the positives from the game and move on to Maltby week. There’s still a lot of games to be played and the lads are working hard in training and on match days, so we need to stick to it.”
