Martin McIntosh says he can have no complaints after his Buxton side were beaten by high-flying Grantham Town.

The Bucks slumped to their second defeat in four winless Evo-Stik Northern Premier League matches with a 3-0 loss to the Gingerbreads on Saturday.

It was the third top five opposition McIntosh’s men have faced on the bounce but where they had drawn before Buxton were left empty-handed by Grantham. Bucks boss McIntosh said: “I think on the day and overall Grantham were better than us. I’ve no complaints there. The first half was very even and we had three chances and they had one.

“They took theirs and that changed the whole face of the game for me. Had we taken the guilt-edged chances that we had I’m sure the outcome of the game would have been different.

“When you get beat there’s reasons for it. Not taking your chances and then after that I think the game was dead and buried after the second goal and the penalty.

“We can have no complaints there really. We’ve beaten teams and I’ve heard managers that don’t give a true reflection of the game.

“From our point of view we have to give Grantham credit how they went about it. When you get beaten you sometimes have to give credit to the opposition.”
