Braintree Town boss, Hakan Hayrettin, insisted that he would “not accept second best” from his players following last night’s exit from the FA Trophy, beaten 5-2 at the hands of Ryman Premier hosts Dulwich Hamlet.
Hayrettin said: “I thought we were the better team for an hour, but unfortunately in football, if you make mistakes then you get punished.
“Their second goal was a fluke, perhaps (Manny Parry own goal), but we should have scored three or four goals by then. However, we didn’t take our chances and Dulwich Hamlet punished us. Fair play to them, they are a good side.
“However, we should be coming to places like this and winning, even though Dulwich played well.
“I admit that we folded a bit, after going 3-1 down, but we did go down to 10 men, which didn’t help.
