Instant chance to bounce back for Boro...
BORO have an immediate opportunity to bounce back from Saturday’s disappointing defeat at Curzon Ashton as we travel to bottom of the table, Altrincham, on Tuesday evening (kick-off 7.45pm).
Having taken an early lead at the weekend courtesy of a fine goal from Ashley Chambers, we failed to take advantage of being on top for the majority of the opening period.
“You need to make it count when you are on top,” said manager, Tommy Wright. “We created plenty of chances during the first half but we failed to take them and were made to pay after the break.
“We were well on top during that first half and should not have let them have any chance of getting back into the match, but we were poor after the break and conceded two very sloppy goals.
“To concede from a set-piece is even more disappointing, but we have a young group here who will learn from this and I have every faith in them to bounce back in the right way.
“We have an instant opportunity with our game at Altrincham. It’s a chance for us to show that we are learning and moving in the right direction.”
Our hosts have just 17 points to their name this term with one win from their 17 League games on home soil following their relegation from The National League at the end of last season.
