Manager Nigel Clough has said everybody was frustrated following our one all draw with Crawley Town at the weekend.

With a late Marc McNulty penalty giving us a share of the spoils after they had taken the lead, Clough was pleased to see us get back into the game and extend our unbeaten run to six games, but overall he was disappointed with just a point for our efforts.

Speaking to the Official Site in his post game interviews, the gaffer explained.

‘Over the course of the game it is definitely two points dropped, but having had to come from behind in the final 25 minutes minutes or so we are also relieved not to have lost. We dominated at times, without getting a break in the penalty area, but we should have also done better at times in our decision making. There was a lot of good football from us, but when we got in good areas, we made the wrong decision too often. Especially in the first half we had a lot of joy down the right, but we should have made more from those situations.’

Clough goes on to say that usually when you have a 90 minutes like that, where things won’t fall for you and that final bit of quality is lacking, you can go on and lose the game – as we did back against Gillingham – so again he has to take the positives of picking up a point from the match, but he also had to credit the opposition because part of why we struggled was their efforts and work rate to keep us out and at points when we were getting it right, they got the blocks and tackles in to frustrate us.

The other positive was he felt in general we played better than we did against Notts County and Rochdale in the second period, so he has to be satisfied.
