thoughts on the match..
They were more
physical and better on the ball. We had an off night. I will have to search for
the reasons why we had an off night. I didn't like much about the way we
missing several key players out with injuries…
We missed a couple
guys today, Daniel Woolard and Robbie Russell, the list
goes on and on. But it's still not an excuse for our performance. We didn't cut
it. My concern is the way this group played.
