Lancashire - Probably Our Most Frustrating Game Of The Season

Skipper Left Annoyed After Coventry Defeat

20 January 2018

Olly Lancashire couldn't hide his frustration in the wake of our 3-1 defeat to Coventry City earlier today.

Maxim Biamou's wonder goal and Marc McNulty's penalty put the Sky Blues firmly in the driving seat, before Ollie Banks first goal for the Reds gave his side a glimmer of hope. 

Town were much more the dangerous side and had 19 shots to their name, but they were unable to haul themselves level and their fightback was ended by McNulty's second goal of the game, leading Lancashire to pull no punches in his post match assessment. 

"It was probably the most frustrating game of the season in many ways," he told the local media.

"The stats man just told me that we had nineteen shots, they had three on target and they obviously won 3-1.

"It was disappointing because at 2-1 at half-time I thought that the momentum was with us and even in the first twenty-minutes of the second-half with the scrambles - I can't believe how the ball didn't go over the line and in the back of the net.

"It hit the crossbar twice and then Banksy (Ollie Banks) hit it and claimed that their lad hand-balled it on the line - I didn't see it myself.

"It was just a massive scramble and we need them to go in because if it goes in, with twenty-minutes to, there's only one team who is pushing to win it. 

"We then lost the ball in a bad area and they've hit us with a sucker-punch.

"It was disappointing because at 2-1 at half-time I thought that the momentum was with us and even in the first twenty-minutes of the second-half with the scrambles - I can't believe how the ball didn't go over the line and in the back of the net."

"Delivery into the box was very good today and we got to a lot of first contacts but we just didn't seem to be able to get the ball on target and their keeper saved a couple.

"We had enough chances to score and to be fair to them they took their chances very well.

"It is a sickening blow but we'll pick ourselves up and we'll go again. 

"We've been on a good run and we need to get back on it now.  

"We feel like we did enough to win the game today but obviously we haven't so we'll go home, get back on the training ground and work even harder.

"We're still in a very good place and we're still very confident."
