Torquay United player-manager Kevin Nicholson was left frustrated after watching his side make most of the running away to North Ferriby but coming away with nothing to show for it.
On a day when United would have wanted critical moments to go their way, it was a performance that promised much but failed to show enough cutting edge.
“I think we should have scored two of three – we didn’t” said Kevin.
“We need to make it happen. We had some half chances and you need to put them away. We had some decent chances; you need to put them away. We had chances from set-plays, you’ve got to mean it and want it – we didn’t quite [do it].
“I’ve been in these games and around these games so many times. You deserve probably to win the game and you end up losing it because you don’t take those chances. It probably takes away from a better performance overall. It probably takes away from a lot of good things our boys did. But the name of the game is that you take those chances otherwise this is going to happen.
“It may be anxiety, or desperation to do well rather than a calmness to just do your job. We had a bit of desperation for five minutes after they scored where we lost a bit of composure. We got ourselves together and we went again and had more chances.
“If you create that many of chances in one game you should take them. We didn’t and paid the price.”
