In the wake of yesterday's 1-1 draw with Cheltenham Town at Adams Park, here are some views on the game from the Robins' manager Mark Yates and a few of their fans.
"Two points dropped," said Yates.
"We shot ourselves in the foot after three minutes, gifting another calamitous goal, but the response was fantastic."
"We were by far the brighter side in the first-half, and even at the end we're still pressing and pressing and had three or four great chances in the last six or seven minutes."
"My keeper's not had a save to make, he's hardly touched the ball."
"It was sweltering out there, it was hard, but I felt we should have won...we had enough chances to win the game. We knocked it around superbly well but didn't quite have the finishing touch."
The Robins fans were understandably disappointed to leave Adams Park with only a single point.
The following extracts are taken from the Robins Nest Forum.
'Yates' decisions cost us today. Really cheesed off. We were all over them, McGlashan and Deering were ripping them to shreds and he takes them off.'
'I fail to understand how it was Yatesy's decisions which cost us the game. The changes were all understandable and with the intent of winning the game. Deering and Harrad looked knackered and J wasn't getting any joy from the ref so he was replaced. Goulding and Zeb weren't great but that's not the managers fault.'
Peter Griffin wrote:
'McGlashan was becoming a little frustrated. He started trying to win fouls when he could have kept going and created something.'
'McGlashan has obviously conned this ref before and wasn't getting anything. He still created havoc though.'
'Have to say the officials were shocking, but in the end our shite finishing and reluctance to shoot cost us. The subs let us down a bit and I thought we shouldn't have made any, with the possible exception of Zeb.'
'That really was two points dropped today. We totally dominated from start to finish and Wycombe didn't even register a single shot on target yet we only came away with a point. Our players were repeatedly and cynically fouled (McGlashan in particular) and the ref missed a blatant penalty in the 2nd half but we still should have won by a clear margin.'
'For 80% of the game I thought we were bloody brilliant. Some of the inter-changing and quick tempo passing was the best I have seen at this level. Although at times maybe we were guilty of enjoying it too much and overplaying when the killer ball or a shot was on. To go to Wycombe and limit them to one shot which was dragged 20 yards wide is some going. But that early mix up has cost us 2 big points. Wycombe players and fans were chuffed to bits with a point which tells you everything you need to know.'
'We went to Wycombe, got a draw and a point, and everyone (myself included) is disappointed that we didn't win. It just goes to show how far we have come. A few seasons ago we would have been pleased to go there and get a point but now we have improved so much (and Wycombe possibly got a lot worse) that we consider a draw to be a poor result... we so completely dominated the whole game that to not get all three points feels like a defeat.'
