Flitcroft: We threw point away

Last Updated: Wed, 19 Mar 2014 12:08

Bury boss David Flitcroft was critical of his experienced players after watching his side fall to a 2-1 defeat at bottom side Torquay.

Gulls substitute Ashley Yeoman netted an injury-time winner to extend 18th-placed Bury's winless run to five games.

Clive Platt had earlier cancelled out Lee Mansell's eighth-minute opener and Flitcroft felt the Shakers could have managed the game better from that point on.

He said: "It's a galling, very disappointing defeat. We should have respected the point we had more.

"We fell below our usual standards and I have told the players that in no uncertain terms.

"Doing okay against the top sides is where we have been, but pitting our wits against the teams that are down at the bottom and fighting for their lives is what it's all about.

"Our experienced players aren't making experienced decisions at the moment.

"To win games you have got to have a real belief and I didn't see that in the first half.

"We caused them problems in the second half and deserved the equaliser, but we are just not defending balls into our box the way we should be doing.

"We've got to dust ourselves down and get back on the charge towards the points we still need."
