Audio: Widdrington happy but fine tuning required

Tommy Widdrington was ‘over the moon’ with a point against Sutton United but knows some fine-tuning is needed before the teams meet again on Wednesday.

Borough were the better side in an entertaining 0-0 draw at Priory Lane but the team were left rueing missed chances as they ended up sharing the spoils with fourth-placed Sutton.

“At no stage in that game did I feel we were under long bouts of pressure, probably other than the first four or five minutes,” thought Widdrington.

“We looked the more likely side to go on and win the game. If we hit the net at a half decent ratio of the chances we’re creating, then I think we could’ve won four out of the five games we’ve played.”

Widdrington made no effort to hide his frustration during the match, especially after numerous offside and penalty decisions went against them.

“I can’t moan too much about offside decisions at the end of the day because, as much as I might give the linesman a bashing, he’s in the right position and you got to believe he’s making the right decision.

“I definitely think we deserved at least one penalty today, but then we haven’t had a penalty all season, which is a remarkable stat.”

Ahead of Wednesday’s match, Widdrington said, “We’ve got to regroup and dust ourselves down, but then we’ve got to do that another 11 times in the league this season. If we can get the same effort and enthusiasm with a little bit more quality, I’m sure we can turn that one point into three.”
