Stockport County manager Jim Gannon didn’t hold back as he blasted his players for not scoring more goals as they cast aside Curzon Ashton.
The County boss was furious as his players for running the clock down when they were 3-0 up before the hour point.
Gannon said it was an opportunity wasted to increase the club’s Vanarama National League North goal difference.
All the playoff chasers won on Saturday and the manager knows how important it is to not only win, but win well when you are well on top.
“I’m actually livid,” Gannon said. “It was a four pointer in some respects. I know some people won’t understand that expression but we needed to increase out goal difference and we didn’t. I really disappointed.
“If we have an opportunity to win games by more than we need to. There’s always a bit of a circus.
“The mentality has got to be different. We can’t take our foot off the gas. We dropped off and it’s infuriating.”
Gannon added: “You’re 3-0 up and we have just sat back and thought it was job done. Our last ten or 15 minutes needs to be better than what it was
“We have got a lot to learn. I ended up shouting. I’m probably being too harsh but we should have won by more.
“We are very, very focus on getting into the playoffs and now we have to get through these next few weeks.
