'We lacked end product', says Aldershot Town striker after defeat to Chesterfield
Aldershot Town striker Mo Bettamer said they lacked an ‘end product’ in their defeat to the Spireites.
In a close encounter in terms of chances at The EBB Stadium on Tuesday night, Alex Whittle’s first Chesterfield goal proved to be the winner.
The hosts had an opportunity to equalise late on but Ricky Miller failed to connect properly with the ball.
“I thought Chesterfield started really quite well,” Bettamer told Shots TV.
“For the first five or 10 minutes they put us on the back foot but we weathered the storm and we started to slowly get into the game.
“I don’t think the game had a lot of chances, however, it was always going to come down to who takes the first chance and Chesterfield took theirs and held it.
“In the second-half we kept the ball much better, I think we entered their final third quite a bit. I think we just lacked the end product.”
The Blues defended magnificently after the break with the back three of Haydn Hollis, Fraser Kerr and captain Laurence Maguire all excelling.
Bettamer added: “We put the pressure on in the second-half, but it was not a game of many chances.
“We always believed we would get that one chance but obviously it did not work out the way we thought it would.
“There was always going to be one chance in the game that the result would depend on and they took it.
“We had a chance ourselves and we did not take it.”
