Call it stating the bleeding obvious if you will. Eric Black sends his first and last post-match SAFC e-mail …
I thought we deserved to take the lead, but the penalty changed things.
I don’t want to take anything away from Seb [Larsson], though, as he has been fantastic for us.
The penalty was the pivotal moment – if that had gone in, I think we would have gone on to win the game comfortably.
However, within 40 seconds they’ve equalised and the game became very difficult for us from there.
The margins are so fine. Ultimately, if you don’t score you can’t constantly rely on the defence to ensure the opposition don’t get a goal.
It’s bitterly disappointing to lose the game – there are moments which change football matches and the penalty was one of them.
We were drained of confidence and a little bit of energy after that and the game became difficult.
Now there is a new manager coming in and he’ll try to push things forward.
All the best,
