“NOT OUR BEST PERFORMANCE, BUT A WELL EARNED AWAY POINT” SAYS NORTH.
Carlton Town Vice Chairman Barry North spoke to us following Carlton’s 1-1 draw at Glossop North and admitted the Millers had not been at their fluent best.
“Wether it was the hangover from Wednesdays Cup defeat, the long journey, the heavy pitch or perhaps a combination of all three, but we were not at our best on this occasion”
“The effort and application was all there, but passes went astray and we were not at our most fluent, although having said that, we could have been 3-0 up, Mamoke gave us an early lead with a fine early finish, Niall Davey hit the woodwork and their keeper made a great save” said North.
“So despite being a goal in front, in the end we were happy to settle for a point given the amount of pressure we absorbed in the second half, when North Glossop were the better side” admitted an honest North.
“When they equalised, they didn’t half celebrate it, I suppose it shows how far we have come in such a short time and the fact is, it was the first away league goal we have conceded this season”
“Special praise from me for Jack Steggles, some fine saves and a good all round game from our young keeper” concluded North.
Carlton are next in action next Saturday when Market Drayton Town are the visitors to Stoke Lane 3pm.
