Buxton might have hit nine goals in a midweek cup win but it did little to soothe their manager’s frustration over recent wastefulness.

Martin McIntosh’s Bucks thumped Holbrook Sports 9-0 in the Derbyshire Senior Cup on Tuesday night but the Scot was still annoyed by Saturday’s 1-1 draw against Barwell.

Buxton were guilty of wasting some golden opportunities and it proved costly, the draw leaving them in the bottom half of the table when a win would have put them in the top 10. McIntosh was obviously pleased to progress in the cup in such style but Saturday’s result was still on his mind.

“The opposition was obviously a lot further down the pyramid than we are but it was good for other players to get some goals,” he said. “We’ve missed so many chances over the last four or five games, we’ve drawn three and lost one but with the number of chances we could have had another six points there.

“It was good to get some goals but I’m still disappointed from Saturday, having drawn 1-1. We had three one-on-ones with the keeper and some really simple chances and if we’d taken one we would be eighth and not 14th.”
