Jay Saunders was almost lost for words after Maidstone lost to Barrow.

United are only six points above the National League bottom four after Saturday’s 1-0 defeat at the Gallagher – their 15th game without a win. Boss Saunders felt his side had more than enough of the play against a Bluebirds team largely content to sit on their first-half lead but they didn’t look like scoring.

Saunders said: “We had a lot of possession, got in some great areas, put a lot of balls in the box but we couldn’t score a goal. The one real good chance they had, they take.

“I’m not quite sure what to say to be honest. I don’t think there was anything between the two sides.

“I thought we had the majority of the possession. If you look at entries into the box, we put a hell of a lot of balls in their box but we didn’t gamble at far stick.

“Blair Turgott’s put a great ball across the box at the start of the second half and no one’s taken a chance on it and we’ve put countless number of balls in the box. I think the majority of the game, second half, was played in their half but they’ve taken their chance and we haven’t taken ours.”
