Ronnie Moore was left to rue defensive errors after seeing his side lose out 2-0 to Exeter City at Victoria Park this afternoon.
“We started the game at a high tempo without creating too many chances but then we huffed and puffed and I thought there was nothing in the first half really,” the Pools boss told Pools PlayerHD.
“But we were caught sloppy from a call in and the lad gets a free header and it doesn’t matter how well you play if you can’t defend crosses into the box.
“When Nathan Thomas played, I thought he was a constant threat for us and if he is in a wide position, going past the full back time and time then the striker has to be on the front foot.
“I think if we’d had a natural goalscorer in there today, we’d have won the game because they’ve only had one chance in the second half and we’ve been attack attack attack without really testing the keeper.
“I think the tempo we had for that 35 – 40 minutes in the second half was a positive, we were at them but if you don’t defend crosses then you’re not going to win games. We have to cut that out.”
