FOOTBALL: We deserved much better, says boss Ford
11:00am Monday 4th November 2013 in Sport
Oxford City boss Mike Ford felt his side deserved more from their game at Harrogate Town on Saturday.
City were beaten 3-2 despite dominating for periods of the game, and Ford was left fuming after watching his side concede three sloppy goals inside seven minutes.
“At worst we should draw the game,” he said.
“We should never, ever have lost that game today.
“I would imagine their manager is delighted with three points because his team didn’t deserve to win.
“We scored two, we looked a threat, but if you score two goals away at Harrogate you’ve got to win the game.”
Teenage triker Kayden Jackson, on loan from Swindon Town, came off the bench to make his City debut, scoring with his first touch of the ball, and Ford was pleased with his contribution.
He said: “He was a constant threat for 20 minutes when he came on.
“He’s obviously quite raw and he’s got a lot to learn, but he’s prepared to get in the box and have a go.”
