LEISTON manager Carl Chenery was all praise for his players after their goalless draw with Fleetwood Town keeps them involved in this season's FA Cup.
However Chenery thought his team could have won.
“The game was so similar to Lewes and we felt the same today as we did then that maybe we had missed an opportunity,” he said.
“There were not a lot of clear cut chances and at the end of the day in the final minutes we could have won this match.

“The ball was flying all over the place with the wind but Jamie's handling was superb,” he said.
“His handling was exceptional and he kept us right in the game at the start.”
Leiston defender Mark Goldfinch said: “We are a bit disappointed really, when it was 11 against 11 they probably had the better chances but after we had the extra man I thought we were going to go on and win.
“But everything seemed to keep falling for them and not for us but we are confident we can still get something from this tie.”
