Better into the wind, but no first touch - Ward
JOHN Ward felt his side lacked the killer touch, inside the penalty area, during yesterday’s 1-0 defeat at Carlisle United.
JOHN Ward felt his side lacked the killer touch, inside the penalty area, during yesterday’s windswept 1-0 defeat at Carlisle United.
A 22nd minute goal from Cumbrians skipper Paul Thirwell condemned the U’s to a 1-0 defeat, although the Essex side did improve in the second period.
“I thought both teams played better against the wind, which defies what people think,” explained Ward.
“Both teams worked harder against those conditions to get it down and pass it around better.
You may also want to watch:
“Carlisle passed it around well in the first half and took their goal well. We passed it better in the second period but didn’t take our chances.
“We didn’t get that right first touch in the box, and the conditions meant there were very few goalmouth opportunities,” added Ward.
