Darren Moore was left as frustrated as the 5000-plus Wednesday fans as we fell short at both ends of the pitch in our 1-1 draw at Bolton today.
The match stats showed we created 21 chances, but with only five on target, while Bolton had just eight efforts with two on goal and Moore said afterwards: “We created enough chances to win two football matches but we didn’t take them and that’s cost us.
”We shouldn’t have allowed that to happen, we should have put the game to bed.
“This is two points dropped. You can’t come here and have that level of chances and not walk away with three points.”
After once again conceding late in the game – and from a set piece – Moore said: “You can’t recreate all match situations in training. And when you look at all the goals we have conceded from set plays, they have been from different angles.
”We have worked on them in training and we will continue to work on them in training. We get the psychology coach in with the players.
”We try to create stuff but sooner or later the penny has got to drop with them. It doesn’t seem to be dropping with them at the moment.
“I know we will look to the defenders because a goal has gone in but it is the whole team. Everybody has got a part to play.”
The manager added: “Collectively as a team, we were not quite where we should have been in scoring goals and defensively a lack of concentration has seen us concede a goal and end up dropping the two points.
“Was the performance there? Yes. Did we create enough chances to win the game? Yes. Have we won the game? No, so there are questions that need to be asked.
”We need to get better and iron out those errors and those are the standards that we set here. Now we will get back on the training ground, analyse the game and focus on MK Dons for next Saturday.”
