Chris Hardy was baffled as to how his Whitby Town side didn’t take something from the Weaver Stadium following a disappointing 1-0 defeat to Nantwich Town.
Whitby have now gone ten games without victory but the Blues boss feels that his sides performance in Cheshire was worthy of a result, also believing that a change in fortunes isn’t far away.
“How we haven’t got something from that game, I do not know,” said a bemused Hardy in his post-match interview.
“I think we controlled possession, I think we had numerous chances, including a missed penalty to break the deadlock for ourselves. How we haven’t done that I don’t know.
“I’ve seen enough over the last three games to see that this will turn. The stats make it quite alarming how we haven’t managed to take more from games.
“I knew we had to find another gear and we did that with the change of personnel [at half-time], change in the system, we had a lot of possession. We had decent enough chances to be able to give ourselves a chance to get back on level terms.”
However, Whitby Town should have come away with at least a point on Saturday but as Chris Hardy points out, an error at the back cost his side early on.
“We can’t be giving soft free kicks away in those areas, especially when you’ve got their type of personnel with those types of deliveries.”
