Shirtliff..'I am hoping this was just a bad day...'

Speaking after the match to the Mansfield CHAD, Shirtliff said "The bottom line is that we conceded goals from a corner and a long throw which we spoke about all week but haven't dealt with on the day.

"It is a problem for us that keeps rearing its ugly head.

"We were poor, though it wasn't down to a lack of effort. Too many of our players had poor performances in terms of what we are used to seeing from them.

"I am hoping this was just a bad day at the office and we can move on.

"I don't think there was that much between the teams apart from the two goals.

"We didn't create enough and didn't ask enough questions of their defenders. In and around their box our attacks usually fizzled out."
