TERRAS: King fumes after Hinckley draw
BRENDON King accused his men of handing Hinckley United ‘a lifeline’ in Saturday’s 2-2 draw at De Montford Park.
Stewart Yetton put the Terras ahead twice in the contest but both times they let the hosts back in it, much to the frustration of the visiting manager.
King told Echosport: “When you go 1-0 up away from home you have got to then take the sting out of it but instead we gave them a soft penalty, which handed them a lifeline.
“We then went 2-1 up only to give away another goal just a minute later and the lads know that is just not good enough.
“We passed the ball well and created chances but to score two goals and come away with just a point is disappointing.
“I know where the problem lies and we will now be working hard all week to address it. We need to be better.”
Commenting further on the spot-kick his side gave away, King added: “It was definitely a penalty. Danny Clay has blocked one of their lads off in the box at a free-kick and we can have no complaints about that.
“Having said that, Danny was floored twice before the ball came in but both the referee and his assistant said they didn’t see it.
“To be honest we didn’t seem to get any of the 50-50 decisions and we didn’t get our first free-kick until 35 minutes in, which is something I have never seen before.
“However, we cannot use that as any sort of excuse.”
The Terras are now winless in four and as a result are six points adrift of new leaders Hemel Hempstead Town.
As for Hinckley, they remain second-bottom but King doesn’t think they will be there for long.
He said: “On the evidence of that performance they will soon be climbing the table.
“They have brought a couple of new lads in and they are not an easy side to play against, particularly on their own patch.”
Next up for the Terras is a trip to Fareham Town in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup on Saturday (3pm).
