Yates: A Poor First Half

17 November 2012

Mark Yates left disappointed with a poor defensive display.

Mark Yates speaking to the media following today's 4-2 loss to Rotherham:

"We got what we deserved for our first half performance. I was very disappointed in our performance and how we defended. My players have been magnificent all season but they let themselves down.

"We knew there would be backlash and we started on the front foot but the rest of the first half was far from pleasing. It's good that we have a game on Tuesday because we'll try to put it right but I wasn't happy.

"I thought Keith Lowe was outstanding but apart from that there weren't many that got any positives out of the game. We knew we had to stand up but today we didn't and we must do better. We played some decent stuff at times but if we leave ourselves open then we'll gift teams goals and you'll get caught out.

"We got what we deserved for our poor first half showing today. We'll move on quickly because we have a game at Chesterfield. The supporters came up in their numbers and it was a decent following but it was a shame we didn't give them anything to shout about."
