LES PARRY admitted that his side’s slow start cost them the game, as they crashed to an injury time sickener.
A goal in the first minute put Rovers on the back foot, leaving Parry to rue the poor start that led to a second defeat in a week.
He said: “We’ve started with a one goal deficit, they’ve scored from their kick-off which was a really poor goal to give away. For the first five minutes, they pressed us a little bit, and then I thought we did okay after that, near the end of the first half.”
With Joss Labadie’s wonder strike seemingly tying the game, Parry also explained why he took off the impressive midfielder.
“Joss was coming off, and we were putting Andy Robinson on,” he added. “Andy wasn’t ready, so Joss stayed on for that minute – and he scored.
“So had Robbo been ready Joss would have been off. He’d been booked but he’d also given away two fouls after he’d been booked, and we were afraid that he was going to walk.
“He got a great goal – the game wasn’t going anywhere, was it? To be fair, I don’t think we deserved to win the game – I’m not trying to say that, but I think everyone who watched that would have said that a draw was a fair result.”
