Gary Bowyer was frustrated with the lack of chances his side carved out in the 2-0 defeat to AFC Wimbledon this afternoon.
The manager, having watched his side create numerous opportunities in recent matches, was disappointed not to work Dons ‘keeper George Long, especially with a bolstered attack.
Speaking post-match, here’s what he had to say…
Lack of a forward threat.
It’s one of the very few times this season when we’ve not carried a threat going forward. That’s hugely disappointing when we’ve got Kyle Vassell back and Dan Agyei in for his debut. We’ve not created nowhere near enough as we’ve normally done. That’s a major frustration today.
The two goals are poor goals defensively from us, and we’ve been punished for it. I felt sorry for Joe Lumley because he pulled of a magnificent save when called upon but we’ve not backed him up.
Dan Agyei’s debut.
He’s only had one proper training session with us. He’ll be alright and he’ll get goals and certainly more opportunities than what he’s had today.
Return of Vassell following eight-match absence.
He’s another one that’s going to be better for playing as long as he did today. It’s no surprise that he was rusty at times because that’s going to be expected. He’s been better every day in training and we expect him to kick-on against next week because of this game today.
Not to standard.
We’ve not done ourselves credit today, and we've certainly not given the wonderful support that we had anything to shout about. That's disappointing from us.
