BLYTH Spartans boss Tom Wade thought the 3-0 scoreline suffered by his side in the defeat at Hednesford on Tuesday flattered the hosts.
The defeat came after a good win over Worksop Town on Saturday – and it all led from a bad start.
“Conceding after a couple of minutes put us on the back foot,” said Wade.
“It was a soft goal but after that we competed really well for the rest of the half.
“At half-time I was confident we’d get something from the match. We created chances, some really good ones too, which should have been converted. It’s a bit of a worry really.
“Hednesford are a good strong side and very good defensively.
“We had players missing and it was a massive journey but we didn’t deserve the score line.
“It was all the more disappointing after our good win over Worksop on Saturday.
“We need to work on achieving consecutive victories.”
Wade is looking forward to the next challenge – another long trip, this time to Stafford, on Saturday.
“I’m pretty confident about the weekend,” he added.
“We’ll need to get the best out of the lads and we should be OK if we can.”
