Clipstone boss Dave Hoole says his side “have to be braver” after they were beaten by Graham Street Prims in a tight game at the Lido Ground that finished 1-0 to the visitors.
A stunning free kick from Michael Fitzhugh was the difference between both teams after a snake bitten Clipstone side did everything right apart from scoring.
“This is a game we should have definitely got something from – at minimum a draw.” Said Hoole.
“We have got to wise up quickly. With the amount of possession we had, we can’t come away not testing the goalkeeper – it is frustrating.”
“A bit of magic from the visitors that was the difference. It just leaves a sour taste in the mouth with it being there only real goal-scoring effort in the game.”
“Defensively we were impressive, we limited them to very little but unfortunately you can’t do much to stop the quality on the free kick, credit to their lad.”
“We want to win games and we have to open up, so for us to enjoy so much possession shows we’re playing in a way to try and win games of football. We will always do that.”
The Cobras will now prepare for their away fixture against Kimberley Miners Welfare next Saturday.
