Alexander: We haven’t taken advantage of our good play

27 September 2014

Manager left frustarted after defeat

Graham Alexander gave his assessment of this afternoon’s narrow defeat at Peterborough United to the Club’s media team after the game.

The Scotsman was left frustrated with his side’s inability to turn their opportunities into goals, but admitted that the defending for United’s goal should have been better.

He said: “We haven’t taken advantage of our good play and we have to start doing that because we put ourselves in a difficult position.”

Conor Washington notched the only goal of the game on the stroke of half time, and Alexander was disappointed with the manner they conceded the goal.

“It was a poor goal to concede but we put ourselves under pressure when we don’t take our chances.

“The lads have been fantastic. Apart from last week against Bristol City when they had opportunities, no team has really troubled our defence.

“We have to learn that we’ll get punished for the slightest miss-concentration.

“We have to look at it as a group now and re-group, not just for next week but every game this season.

Stephen Crainey was dismissed late on after picking up two yellow cards, and Alexander was left baffled by the referee’s decision.

“I’ve seen the decision myself and I’ve seen it from where the referee was, so I don’t know why he’s sent him off. We seem to be on the end of some bad decisions sometimes when we’re away from home.

“We can’t appeal because it’s a second yellow so we’ll just have to take it on the chin.”
