FRUSTRATED Nas Bashir was left to rue his side’s missed chances after they were beaten by fellow Blue Square Premier strugglers Lincoln City.
The Hayes & Yeading manager was disappointed his team failed to convert more of their chances after Pele’s first goal for the club was not enough to avoid defeat against the Imps.
He said: “It was a big game and we’re very disappointed because I thought we put in a big performance. The difference in games like this is putting the ball in the net and we had enough possession and enough chances but we didn’t take advantage."
After a goalless first-half, in which neither side really threatened, Bashir had strong words for his players at the interval.
He added: “I told the lads at half-time that they needed to stand their ground and not be intimidated and in the second-half the performance was excellent. I thought we battered them in the second-half but you can have all that good play and all those chances but it means nothing if you don’t take them.
“You’ve got to give their keeper some credit as he made some decent saves and I thought he kept them in the game to be fair.The two goals we gave away we probably should have done better with. Stevie [Arnold] was really unfortunate with the bobble."
