Boss disappointed by defeat
Poachers boss Gary Edgley says yesterday's showing at Kirby Muxloe was "just not good enough'.
"I’m so disappointed with our performance, it’s the worst I have seen since I have been here," he said after the 3-1 defeat.
Boston were reduced to 10 men when Corey Newman was shown two yellow cards.
"Again a referee's decision has hurt us, but I’m not going to use that as an excuse because we simply weren’t good enough all over the pitch," said Edgley.
"I really didn’t see this performance coming which is why I’m so disappointed, my lads are so much better than what they have shown today and I’m looking for a massive reaction from them in Tuesday's game.
"The lads may have thought I was a bit harsh on them, but I want to set and I am setting high standards for them to aim at individually and collectively and we were nowhere near them today.
"Having said all that, in all fairness we created enough chances today to have got something from the game. We had two really good chances at 0-0 which would of made it a different game, then three of four more throughout the game. I now feel sorry for my wife who will have to put up with this grumpy gaffer for a few days!"
Boston Town's goal came from Dan Moulds, his first for the club.
Edgley's side now travel to Eynesbury on Tuesday (30 October) for a United Counties League Cup tie. They have a blank Saturday next weekend and their next league game at at home to league leaders Daventry Town on Saturday 11 November.
