Salford City’s joint-boss Bernard Morley slammed the way his side threw away a 3-1 lead after drawing 3-3 at Harrogate Town writes Tom Feaheny.
It looked like The Ammies were set for another crucial three points as with 85 minutes on the clock they had the advantage. But three Simon Ainge penalties saw the side drop two points. They are now just a point inside the top five places. Morley told the club’s YouTube account he was displeased with what he had witnessed.
“It’s an absolute car crash, I just can’t defend it, we just don’t learn, it’s the same individuals, they are good players but they are not learning, all three penalties, see us go to ground, it means the referee has a decision to make.
“We’ve played to a game plan, we’ve scored three good goals, we are chasing a play-off spot. We can’t be three one up and then give them a penalty or two more.”
Positives for the Lancashire side included a wonder goal from John Johnston who once again impressed for the team. But Morley said he had to look at the final result.
“We’ve had some good performances, I’m gutted for individuals, we win together and lose together. We can’t work on this in training, it’s decision making it needs to change quickly.”
