ALCESTER Town FC Manager Danny Janes said he was left frustrated by his side’s goalless draw on Saturday, despite seeing his team dominate the game and create numerous chances.

Janes handed starts to Lewis Marston and Wil Beach on their return, as Alcester looked to claim their first home league win of the season.

Alcester dominated the first half in terms of possession, controlling the play and moving the ball into the final third.

The chances started to come as Alcester found space, Marston, Ward and Kalach all had good chances. Alcester continued to press but could not find the opening goal.

The second half was very similar, Alcester played some very good football and had complete control over the game.

This time Bunn, Ward, Chambers and Kalach all had chances that were well saved from the visiting goalkeeper.

Alcester then had a scare of their own when the CT Shush forward found a way through, only for Downey to block on the line.

The result left manager Janes reflecting on his side’s ruthlessness – “I thought we played some excellent football today, our mentality to move the ball around the pitch and play in tight areas was excellent.

The issue was in the final third, that is when the play slowed down and we didn’t link up in and around the box.

There were moments when we needed to speed up our play, but we gave their defence time to set themselves.”

“I spoke about this scenario before the game, I knew we would dominate the game and they would be hard to break down.

We spoke about moving their defence around by moving the ball quickly, the forwards linking up and players moving as the ball travels. We did not do those things and that is frustrating, especially after we also worked on it in training.

On reflection, we had too many average performances in that final third.”

“We had our chances to win the game, but we were not ruthless enough which has been a common theme from our performances this season.

We could have scored six or seven last week but in the end we allowed the opposition to stay in the game, it was a similar story today.

I am happy with the clean sheet, Jack and the back four were superb and that is pleasing from a defensive point of view.”

Alcester travel to Earslwood next Saturday in the cup.
