"We deserved at least a draw"

5 April 2017

Head Coach felt Reds did enough to earn something from Wales trip

Dermot Drummy felt that the Reds' efforts against Newport County merited more as they came away from Rodney Parade empty handed on Saturday.

Mickey Demetriou's first half strike was the difference in an otherwise unspectacular 1-0 defeat at the weekend, but the side did create some close opportunities late in the game.

"I think on chances we deserved at least a draw – Enzio (Boldewijn), James (Collins) and Matt (Harrold) all went close late on," he said.


"It wasn’t a great game to watch and we said about not trying to play out from the back – the one time we unfortunately did do that their guy hit a rocket.


"But then I felt that we didn’t go in behind them enough, and even though Glenn had to make a few saves I felt like it was a disappointing performance."

Much was made about the state of the playing surface ahead of Saturday's game, but the Head Coach felt that his side had enough possession on the tricky pitch to at least take something home with them from the match.


"It’s always going to be tough and it was never going to be conducive to flowing football but I thought we had enough of the ball to get something out of the game.


"We couldn’t quite go for the contest in the way that I like us to and at times we had to resort to aerial football, and we just couldn’t get the job done."
