Dom Roma disappointed as Gainsborough Trinity fail to make most of chances


Gainsborough boss Dominic Roma was a little disappointed that his side only achieved a point at home to Nuneaton despite coming from behind twice.

James Reid netted the equaliser from the spot on the stroke of half time to make it a four goal half.

The Holy Blues had dominated the half and would have been extremely disappointed to have gonein level, never mind behind.

Roma said he thought his side had created enough chances to win the game.

He said: “I’m a bit disappointed that we haven’t picked up the three points because I thought we had created enough in the game to do that.

“We scored twice, Jarman has hit the bar, Thewlis has got through one on one. Matt Templeton has had an effort that forced a good save.

“I am pleased that it is six unbeaten at home, but I thought we probably should have had the win today.

“On reflection I’m disappointed with the penalty we have conceded because I don’t think you can get out the way when someone is shooting and you are two yards away.

“Its pretty difficult to move your arm out of the way or even get out of the way completely.

“They weren’t in the game for the first half an hour and it’s probably the most dominant first half we have had all season.

“They have gone through with their first attack, George has pulled off a good save and they have managed to scramble it in.”

But Roma was pleased by the fact that his side have now extended their unbeaten home run to six and defensive aspects of the game.

“All in all it’s a point and we remain unbeaten at homeover the last six games.

“I was pleased with the team defensively today. That back four has a lot of experience. Jake has played a lot of games at right back as well because I played centre half last season.

“Quinny and Matt Wilson have played umpteen games at this level and Josh, despite being a young lad, has played over a hundred times. They should be able to deal with what they had to throw at us.

“They defended well for large periods, blocked shots when they needed to and we dealt with crosses well.

”I’ve got to find a balance between keeping clean sheets and going forward and creating chances sowe can score goals.

“I don’t want to take the goals away from the team because we have a lot of players who can score and a lot who can produce chances.

“Me and Fozzie will have a word in the week and see if we can strike that balance but the Curzon game is a perfect opportunity for us to getsome points away from home. If we sort that out then we will be in for a good season.”
