Citizens Interview: Kevin Nicholson

1 year ago By Kevin Owen

"We weren’t good enough today, full stop" - Bangor City manager Kevin Nicholson's post-match interview at Cardiff Met

Bangor City FC Media:
Kevin, a 3-1 defeat here at Cardiff Met today. It’s bitterly disappointing after how well we played last week?

Kevin Nicholson:
Yes, disappointing because when you get a result like we had last week against TNS you want to back it up with another. I said that before the game, it’s what we said to the lads, but it’s one thing saying it and it’s another thing doing it. We weren’t good enough today, full stop.
We need to learn from our performance today and the result quickly. We need to move forwards, and obviously look ahead to the game against Prestatyn on Friday.

Bangor City FC Media:
No matter how much tactical preparation there was ahead of today’s game, conditions didn’t help, but that’s no excuse really is it?

Kevin Nicholson:
Conditions were a factor but, as always, conditions are the same for both teams. They handled the conditions and played the conditions very well in the first half, so all credit to Cardiff Met. It became very difficult for us to get out of our own half but, actually, as poor as we were at times in the first half, we still created opportunities to score. We came very close once or twice. We just didn’t get the goal we needed. It would have been nice before half time.
We came in at the interval. Obviously, we still weren’t happy with the first half, but we wanted to turn the tables in the second half and do what they did to us, if that was possible. We did that to a certain degree… we pulled a goal back but it was too little too late. It would have been a more interesting game if we’d have pulled a goal back at 2-0 but, to concede the third goal at a set-piece and go 3-0 down makes it a mountain to climb.

Bangor City FC Media:
Obviously, it’s back to the drawing board, but we now move on to Friday’s match against Prestatyn. Are you going to approach that match in a different way?

Kevin Nicholson:
Well, like we‘ve said from the beginning, we’ll take it one game at a time. We started ever so well last week but we said it’s only a start. We tried to back it up today. We didn’t. We need to learn from our performance today. Our aim should be to try to play as well as we did at home in our last match on Friday. If we do that then we’ll give ourselves a very good chance of getting the three points
