Boss Rob Edwards has criticised AFC Telford United for a ‘criminal’ display which resulted in losing 2-1 at home to Nuneaton Town.

The Bucks are still third bottom in National League North, three points from safety. James Ferry and Luther Wildin got the goals for the visitors on a bitterly cold night at the New Bucks Head, either side of Amari Morgan-Smith finding the net.

“I thought we were outworked and outfought for the first 35 minutes of the game, which is criminal,” said Edwards. “We got ourselves back into the game and then looked like we were competing, just about.

“We got in at half-time having, somehow, managed to stay in the game. Although our goal did not come under siege too much, we were certainly second best in all departments.

“Second half was a bit of a nothing game, I thought. We didn’t do enough to get ahead or back in it, and they scored a goal which was schoolboy stuff, really.

“Their right-back has gone through five or six people and stuck it in. From his point of view, it was excellent.

“From ours, it’s really, really poor.”
