Manager's Grimsby reaction

28 November 2018

Manager Micky Mellon gave an honest assessment of Tuesday night’s defeat at Grimsby Town.

Speaking to the Club website, the boss said: “It is my team that has defended poorly so the manager has to take responsibility for that. 

“I am angry and frustrated. I am disappointed for the fans that have come such a long way because the support was fantastic from start to finish and I really mean that. 

“It is difficult to understand sometimes the decisions people make or the aggression that is needed from set plays and things like that and the decisions made at crucial times. It can cost you.

“Their second goal is a definite hand ball so that knocked us out of our stride a wee bit. We have to rally and get going again and we get it back to 3-2 and we give away two set play goals again in scrambles and not winning the first header.

“At the end of the day that is what people are put in the team to do and we didn’t do that enough and we looked vulnerable at the back. Going forward, we looked ok and we scored some good goals but the disappointing thing is my team’s defending.”
