King: No panic after Terras' winless streak
BRENDON King has challenged his players to bounce back at the first attempt following last night’s disappointing defeat at Bideford.
The 2-1 loss was the Terras’ first of the season, stretching their winless run to three games, but they are certainly not panicking.
Boss King, told Echosport: “It was a scrappy game and collectively we never really got going. We knew they were going to be physical and in our faces, and on the night we just didn’t cope with it.
“They were at us 100mph and went direct whenever they got the ball. It certainly wasn’t pretty to watch but it was effective and it clearly works for them.
“When we did get the ball down we scored a very good goal through Stewart Yetton but we just didn’t do it enough.
“Sometimes when you go away from home it’s about having two banks of four and staying nice and solid but we didn’t do that. Instead we over-committed ourselves too many times and paid the price.
“I was particularly disappointed with their second goal which we really should have stopped at source. They did get a bit of a lucky ricochet but at the end of the day we need to make ourselves a lot harder to break down.”
He went on to add: “The big thing now is that we bounce back.
“We have played six games, three at home and three away, and have picked up 11 points, which is not too bad. However, we need to get back on track straight away, starting at Hinckley on Saturday.”
Bideford, who also went down to 10 men in the clash, now sit second, three points above the Terras, who lie sixth.
