Deeping Rangers manager Tuncay Korkmaz reflected on a frustrating night after being denied by two stoppage-time goals.

He spoke to referee Paul Gregory after Tuesday’s game against Holbeach United for “a very constructive conversation” over why almost six minutes were added on.

Korkmaz said: “Of course it was very disappointing to lose two points and that was hard to take.

“I thought we deserved more for the way we played. In poor conditions it was a good derby and very clean with few moans and groans.

“Overall it was a tough game for everyone, including the officials.

“At one stage we thought the game wouldn’t carry on as we had a conversation about the conditions before the end of the first half.

“Everybody stuck at it and I thought our lads were absolutely superb in the second half. We created chances and played decent football.

“In the end it was frustrating but getting one point is not a major issue.

“Our target of 60 points for eighth place is still achievable with two more wins.”

Deeping are away to AFC Kempston Rovers on Saturday followed by a trip to Boston Town on Monday.

Korkmaz added: “There is slightly more pressure on the next game against another team challenging for the top eight.

“If we can’t win then we have to make sure we don’t lose.

“Kempston are in good form at home but we beat them in our first meeting.”

Deeping will again be without David Burton-Jones, Jamie Graham, Adam Scotcher, Liam Tunstall and Ian Ward.

Meanwhile, Charlie Coulson has left the club for a full-time career playing in Finland.
