Ged McNamee said he was pleased to take home a point after seeing Pools come from two goals down to draw 2-2 at Sutton United – but admitted they could even have won it.
The First Team Coach stepped in for press duties after an absorbing encounter at Gander Green Lane which saw the home side lead 2-0 until strikes from Mark Kitching and Luke James saw the points shared.
It was a game packed full of good opportunities for both sides and McNamee revealed that some of the players were frustrated they weren’t able to score more than the two goals they managed.
“It must have been good sitting in the stand watching – but I’m not sure if you’d been in the dugout you’d have been thinking that way,” McNamee laughed.
“There were a lot of chances in the game and I think over the full ninety minutes we probably had the better of them and should have scored more.
“We were disappointed to go in a goal down at half-time because it was a bad goal to concede from our point of view but you have to put your chances away or you can suffer like we did.
“The boys were still quite buoyant, and it was all about maintaining that momentum and keeping on pushing forward to see if we could create some more and we did.
“At 2-0 down we were looking for leaders and characters on the pitch and thankfully they were forthcoming and we were able to go again.
“We know we have to tighten up at the back but overall this is a hard place to come so it’s a good point for us – and yet the lads are sitting in there disappointed we didn’t get all three.”
