Critchley: We Didn't Do Enough In The Second Half

Neil Critchley was left disappointed with his side's second half display in the 1-0 loss at St Andrews.

Despite Pool dominating the first half with some impressive chances, they couldn't find that crucial goal and were left to rue their missed chances in the second half, as Lukas Jutkiewicz's strike in the second half was the difference.

"We didn't do enough to win the game," he said.

"I thought we were the better team in the first half. We had some good moments where we moved the ball well, attacked well and created some good opportunities. We were the team in the ascendency. We knew they'd gain some momentum in the second half, or stages of the game where they may go on top, but they never really had any concerted amount of pressure on our goal.

"We didn't do enough in the second half. We didn't play as well as in the first 45 minutes, and whatever we tried didn't come off. The decisive moment is the ball into the box, where they get a lot of bodies in the penalty area, and they get a header over to the man, and it goes into the goal. It could be offside, and that's the fine line at times. 

"I'm disappointed with our quality on the ball, as I think that's what has cost us on the day."
