Alfreton Town manager Nicky Law took the positives from Saturday’s crucial relegation game after seeing his side held to a 2-2 draw by ten-man Welling United at the Impact Arena on Saturday.
“We set off really well – we guessed what shape they were playing and l think we were set up for it and coped with it well, but l think that [the sending off] was the worst thing that could have happened, because they were down to ten men and then we struggled” he reflected.
“We tried that little bit extra – having an extra touch, running with the ball – it didn’t work – and we defended awfully. We must not kid ourselves – Tom Flynn’s made two great saves late on.
“Looking at it on a positive slant – it’s a point, and it gives us another chance next week, but we going to have to go to Bristol and get a win, or a point if the other result goes our way – but we’re still alive, still breathing and we’ll take it to the last game.
“Tom Shaw’s had a fantastic chance – if that goes in it’s all over. l’m pleased for (Massiah) McDonald – he’s come on and got the equaliser and then we chucked everything at it – we threw everything that we had at it.
“Give Welling some credit – they’ve done really well of late – they’ve come here and played the majority of the game with ten men and obviously they are going to be a lot happier with the result than we are.”
