Boss Hayes: “silly mistakes” cost Wisbech Town at Sutton Coldfield in BetVictor NPL South East
BetVictor NPL South East Division: Sutton Coldfield Town 2 Wisbech Town FC 0
Wisbech Town, who lost to two first-half strikes from Isai Marselia, have been rocked by a bad injury to Conor Green, with “silly mistakes” being costly again according to boss Seb Hayes (pictured).
It was confirmed on Sunday morning that Green sustained a broken ankle in Saturday’s game.
Winger Green has made five appearances this season since signing recently.
It was a better second half from the Fenmen but they suffered another defeat on the road.
Hayes said: “At the end of the day we’re in it together but silly mistakes at key times are killing us. Conor has been doing really well.
“They scored in the third minute and in the 34th minute, again giving away key goals at key times.
“They haven’t earned their goals.
“They just played kick-and-rush football like you do this time of year.
“Their first was from a kick from their goalkeeper over our centre-half; the second our midfielder lost the ball and they square it, and it’s a tap-in. It’s so frustrating.
“In the second half we had chances and if we do take them, we get a draw. I’m bored of (saying) it: it’s just that we’re so naive and we’re getting beaten by basics.
“We work on it. We go over it every team-talk. It’s the same stuff every week.
“Ollie Gale has been out for three months and hopes to be back in training Tuesday (last night).
“With a small squad you need everyone to stay fit. So yes, I’m frustrated and unhappy. It’s another game of small, fine margins.
“We’re doing everything we can and we’re not getting a break.”
The result leaves Wisbech Town in 19th place.
Wisbech: Wilson, Hart, Marshall, Kaye, Sanders, Spencer, Draper, Setchell, Nassunculo, Rogers, Green. Subs: Maddison, Whyatt, Shackleton.
The Fenmen next Saturday travel to Loughborough Dynamo.
Hayes said: “I said before this game we need seven points from the next three games so we’ve got to go now to Loughborough and win.
“If we don’t do that then there’s a lot of people looking at me.
“I expect things to be changing, whether that’s me or someone else; that’s football.
“It’s a results business: I know that.
“I’m a realist. I understand. You can’t take it personally, that’s the facts from top to bottom.”
