BRIAN Stock remains positive about his side's performances following their dramatic 2-1 loss to Stockport County.

The gaffer said: “I think in and out of possession I felt we caused them problems throughout the afternoon.

“Although we lost the game 2-1, there were quite a lot of positives, we took the game to Stockport County who are a team regarded as favourites for the league and we came close to taking the points off them.” 

The Terras thought they had taken the lead in the 20th minute when Brandon Goodship put the ball beyond ex-Terras keeper Ethan Ross, however celebrations were muted when the linesman flagged for offside.

Reflecting on the chance, Stock said: “It was marginally offside and a shame it wasn’t allowed.”

Despite taking the lead, the Terras were undone in the final minutes when Oliver Crankshaw scored the winner after taking possession off Fitzsimons.

“The finger will be pointed defensively because we conceded two. We looked at the goals and they were disappointing and not like us in terms of how we have defended.”

Speaking ahead of Tuesday night's trip to Bromley the boss said: “The games come thick and fast, we have Bromley coming up and it’s important that we pick ourselves up and learn from our mistakes because it’s a long season.

“I don’t think we’re far off turning these performances into wins and when you look at the table compared to last year, we’ve come a long way.”
