We Could Have Had More - Jones

8 April 2017

Dave Jones felt his side deserved more from today’s game with Morecambe.

The Pools boss saw his side control the game up to half time but an improved second half from the hosts saw Jones’s side pegged back for a point. 

“It’s a deserved point, but it should have been more,” Jones said after the match. 

“But football treats you like that sometimes and if we don’t cut out the mistakes, we get punished. 

“We totally dominated the first half and the second half was fairly even but then we give a goal away to make it 1-1. 

“If we’d have gone two up, I felt we would have got on top. We got in areas where we could do harm but the final ball is letting us down. 

“We were comfortable as you can be first half, with a lot of the ball, but sometimes you don’t do the damage with it.

“Their manager will have had a go at them at half time and it’s on our part down to a lack of experience that we haven’t dealt with that reaction.

“But I can’t fault them they worked their socks off.

“It’s a point, it is disappointing not to get three and that’s the annoying thing.

“But we were away from home against a team struggling and they were never going to roll over.”
