DESPITE seeing his team extend their unbeaten run into double figures, Braintree Town Reserves boss Lee Fisher was left with a touch of frustration after their 3-3 draw with Wisbech St Mary.

The Young Irons look set for a ninth Thurlow Nunn League division one win from their last ten games as they twice led by two goals, but they were pegged back in the latter part of the game.

It was a disappointing finish and Fisher now wants to see better game management from his young players when they continue their quest for promotion at Downham Town on Saturday and then at home against AFC Sudbury Reserves on Tuesday.

The Young Irons boss said: “I’m disappointed, especially as we were 2-0 up at half-time.

“They came back into it, but we then went and got a third and I thought we should have shut the game down at that point.

“It’s disappointing in that respect, but it has kept the unbeaten run going and that’s what we have to focus on.

“I said to the lads after the game that we had played badly but we hadn’t lost and it’s all about how we bounce back now.

“It’s not that we have lost - we haven’t, it’s just that our levels and performances have been so good and this was below that.

“The last time we saw a performance like that was probably the second game of the season against Holland.

“That’s how well we have been playing.

“We had three players out with injuries, but I’m not using that as an excuse and the lads all know what they have to do.

“But we can’t be too hard on them as they have been on such a great run and we are still unbeaten in ten.

“There have been two draws and the rest have been wins.

“It was good to keep that run going.

“However, we should have gone on and won it because we were in control of the game.

“Game management wasn’t the best from us and we maybe overplayed it in the second half when we should have gone a bit longer.

“But we’ll have a good week in training and go again at Downham on Saturday.

“There are still 16 league games to play and six to come this month, so it is a big month for us with Saturday-Tuesday games now for three weeks running.

“Hopefully we have this out of our system now and we can go back to where we have been as there is a lot of football to play.”
