Read what Citizens manager Kevin Nicholson had to say following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Barry Town United

Missed Opportunity

Following Saturday's 1-1 draw at Barry Town United, Citizens manager Kevin Nicholson said:

"We were disappointed at the end of the game as we felt it was a missed opportunity to win another game. Certainly after how we had played in the first half, being in control of the game and deservedly leading 1-0 at half time. However, our second half performance was below the standards we set. We didn't start the half at the same tempo as we did the first, we didn't do the basics well enough and we seemed to lack the same energy in our play. We felt at half time that if we could go on to score the second goal then there would have been no way back for the opposition but unfortunately we didn't manage to get it."

"Barry are an organised team, don't concede many goals and they worked very hard to get back into the game second half and got a goal back through the penalty. At 1-1, the game could have gone either way but we still felt confident of winning it all the way until the end but it wasn't to be on the day - that's football", added Nicholson.

Looking Ahead

The focus now moves on to next Saturday's live televised match at Cefn Druids as Nicholson stated:

"It's our first draw of the season. We were always going to draw a game at some point over the course of the season and it happened to be this game. As the saying goes, if you can't win it, then don't lose it. We will take the point and move on. It extends our unbeaten run to six matches in all competitions. All our focus, thoughts and energy will now go into preparing well for our next game at Cefn Druids, where the aim will be to produce a consistent 90-minute team performance."
