FOOTBALL: 'It was probably down to bad luck rather than bad finishing'

Joint manager Leigh Porter felt Bourne Town were unlucky to bring back one point after coming close to a second away win of the season.

Zak Munton's early effort was cancelled out by St Andrews midway through the second half on Saturday.

The Wakes hit the woodwork three times and created more chances.

Porter said: "We had enough opportunities to go 3-0 or 4-0 up in the first 20 minutes.

"Overall, it was probably down to bad luck rather than bad finishing.

"We spoke before the game about getting a reaction from the home defeat to Lutterworth Athletic.

"As a management team, we were not very happy with the performance last time so we picked an attacking formation. We played more direct and got higher up the pitch.

"We decided to go out there and be really positive. It worked and that's pleasing so credit to the lads as well.

"St Andrews are a strong side with experienced players from a higher level. They will cause problems this season.

"After the equaliser, we finished the game strongly but we couldn't quite get the winner."

The Knockout Cup tie with Harrowby United, scheduled for Tuesday then switched to Abbey Lawn, has been postponed.
