“Placing the ball within the web was lacking. We created possibilities and had been the dominant group. You’ll be able to see that fairly clearly.
“The scoreline impacts it a bit as a result of we had been 1-Zero down, however I used to be happy. They scored one objective from their solely entry into our field. One slight mistake will go in opposition to you and it’s a must to reply. We did that effectively.”
