Tommy Widdrington praised his players for their effort but admitted his side lacked the quality to see off a hard working Sutton United side.

It has been a tough week for all concerned with Borough. Widdrington watched his side crash from the FA Cup thanks to two late goals in Hendon on Tuesday and then saw Sutton score a 95th minute winner to claim all three points at Priory Lane.

Widdrington said, “I can’t make excuses, that’s now four out of six games we’ve been caught out with the last kick of the game.

“We should have taken something from it but I can’t knock the effort from the lads. We are lacking in a bit of quality in certain areas which is something we are working hard to improve.

“But things are just not going well for us. We are not getting the rub of the green and we need to man up a bit.

“I’m just bitterly disappointed for the players, they worked their socks off today.”

Widdrington watched the game from the stands today to get a better perspective of the match but also to give his players and match officials a break from some touchline ear-bashings.

He added, “I have been told sometimes that I am too vocal. I am still a young man in my job so I take things like that on board. Also you can get a different perspective from up there at a better height.”

After the match Widdrington was approached by a Borough supporter who screamed at him to hand in his resignation.

Widdrington said, “I would rather that fan didn’t comeback.”
