HARVEY GUTTED AS BIG DECISIONS GO LEEKS WAY IN CRACKING CONTEST.
Carlton Town joint manager Mark Harvey (pictured at one of the seasons big fund raising nights) was proud indeed of the players after an another excellent away performance, this time against top of the table Leek Town but it was Twyford who got the winner for Leek in the 84th minute to brake Carlton’s resolve.
Harvey felt the two big decisions in the game, a penalty to Leek and a disallowed Carlton goal were the difference between two excellent sides.
“Dan Brown said he’d not made contact for the penalty and Toby Moore felt that he was onside when Tyler Johal flicked his header on” a dissapointed Harvey told us.
They were certainly big decisions in a game which could have gone either way in front of 343, but even though Carlton felt they had not got the rub of the green, Harvey said ” if we play like that for the rest of the season, we will be in the mix, I was proud of the lads today, they gave it everything”
Harvey was not wrong as the Millers twice came from behind thanks to Tyler Blake who twice ghosted in to convert after brilliant Millers pressure and build up play.
Leek fans who spoke to Millers supporters after the game admitted the Milers at least deserved a point and Carlton Chairman Mick Garton was another who agreed.
“I was to far away to make a judgment on the penalty, but spoke to Toby myself and he felt he had timed his run onto Tyler’s flick header to perfection and that would have been a massive goal for us in the first half had it stood, but the officials judged otherwise, so we will have to respect that, but it was frustrating, particularly as they have not lost at home all season and we played really well”
“I have managed to get to quite a few away games this season, most recently at Ilkeston, Sheffield Fc ,Sutton Coldfield and in the County Cup and was yet to see us lose and we certainly didn’t deserve to lose today in my opinion ” continued the Millers Chairman.
“Their number 11 on the right gave us plenty of problems and made the winner, but I thought we gave them plenty to think about to and it was a pleasure to stand with our supporters again who were an inspiration themselves ” concluded the Millers Chief.
Carlton drop to 8th after the narrow defeat, but have games in hand and will be hoping to get back to Winning ways when Market Drayton Town visit Stoke Lane this coming Tuesday.
