Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law feels his side’s 2-1 defeat at league leaders Solihull Moors on August Bank Holiday Saturday was tough to take.

“lt’s a hard one to take. We’ve come here to the top of the table, they’ve not been beaten and l thought first half we were far superior in every department,”s aid Law.

“Again we’ve gone one up, and as we’ve said for six or seven games this season we’ve been the better team for 45 minutes, we’ve performed for 88 minutes and the other two minutes we’ve conceded such poor goals.

“l’ve just said to the players we can’t stand here forever saying it - they’ve got to learn or you’re never going to win.

“It’s disappointing, we’ve come here, we’ve tried to play football in the right way - we get the goal, but we don’t look like we’ve got two in us to finish a team off.

“We try to manufacture things in the front department and it’s difficult - if you want to take the positives out of it we’ve taken a team at the top of the league all the way and l certainly don’t think they’re any better than we are - they’ve probably got more experienced players that don’t make the mistakes that we make,” ended Law.
