Montemurro - We let ourselves down

Montemurro

Joe Montemurro was left bitterly disappointed at the final whistle on Sunday as we were beaten 2-1 by league leaders Manchester City.

Danielle van de Donk provided hope of a comeback after reducing the deficit late on, but we were ultimately made to pay for two brief lapses in concentration.

We spoke to our head coach after the final whistle - and this is what he said:

on what was missing from our performance…
Maybe we lacked a bit of patience in the final third. We got there and we had opportunities, but the important thing is finishing those moves off and we didn’t do that today. We knew it was an emotional event with Nick Cushing’s last game here, but we had enough of the ball and in the final third we could have done a little bit better.

on the two goals we conceded…
Very disappointed, it was textbook stuff really and we let ourselves down. We need to make sure this stuff doesn’t happen and it doesn’t usually happen, today it did and now we have to forget about what’s happened and build and move on.

on whether City deserved their goals…
These games always have shifts of momentum, but I was sat on the bench not really worried about conceding at the times they scored. They got a free-kick and we just didn’t deal with it. We had opportunities in the second half in front of goal, and if our final third smarts were better we’d have got something out of it. But I can’t fault these players, we’ve had three tough games in a week.
