Worcester City captain Stuart Whitehead says his team aren't getting any luck
CAPTAIN Stuart Whitehead says Worcester City have been left “dumbfounded” by their lack of luck in matches.
The centre-half feels decisions and deflections are conspiring against his team, particularly in last night’s 3-0 defeat against Gainsborough Trinity.
City fell behind to Luke Waterfall’s header, which came from a free-kick awarded for a handball by Charlie Reece, while Greg Young also profited from a corner before Simon Russell’s late penalty.
Whitehead said: “I’m a great believer that you make your own luck in the game but we’re getting no rub of the green at the moment.
“Gainsborough had two set-pieces and a penalty, that was it. We’ve had all the chances and come off with a 3-0 drubbing.
“We’re all dumfounded. Everyone worked as hard as they could but it’s not gone for us. That’s the way it’s going for us at the moment.
“Last Saturday against Boston, they scored with a deflection from a set-piece and then we gave the ball away for their player to rocket it into the top corner. Nothing is going for us and it’s hard to rally the lads when we’re in the rut we are in.”
But he added of the Trinity clash: “As hard as we’ve worked the first two goals were avoidable. All that hard work gets undone but switching off in the box and that’s not good enough.
“At this level you’ve got to make sure your man doesn’t score.”
