Guy Hadland was left disappointed with Barwell’s inability to convert their chances during the defeat to Frickley Athletic on Tuesday evening.
Despite being in control for much of the match, the Canaries saw their seven-match unbeaten run end with the visitors scoring in the final ten minutes.
It was a bitter pill for Hadland to swallow, particularly with the second-half being “one-way traffic” in favour of the hosts.
He said: “In the first-half, they had one chance and put it away.
“We had six on target- a couple of great blocks and saves from their goalkeeper. You’ve got to put two or three of those away.
“Things didn’t quite work up top, but I felt we were on top of the game.
“We came out (after half-time) and took an opportunity to make it 1-1, and it was then one-way traffic.
“We were all over them, but then conceded a very sloppy goal at the end”.
The Barwell no.2 was in charge for the match due to manager Jimmy Ginnelly having a knee operation, which could see him absent from matches for a couple of weeks.
“Jimmy’s resting at the moment after having the operation today (Tuesday),” explained Hadland.
“We’ve all mucked together- myself, the players and all of the staff- but he’ll still making the final decisions.
“It feels like we’ve let him down, unfortunately”.
