Gowling: "We've let ourselves down"
The Hereford skipper Josh Gowling admitted that a hard pitch and blustery conditions made life difficult for the Bulls in their narrow defeat at Southport this afternoon, but acknowledged it had been a below-par performance.
Hereford had chances, especially at the beginning of the second period, and when Tommy O'Sullivan blasted a penalty high over the crossbar late in the game.
"Conditions weren't great. The pitch was bobbly and the wind made it difficult to get the ball down and play.
"But, to be honest, we didn't play well at all, and we've let ourselves down.
"We've set our goals between now and the end of the season, and the gaffer has let us know that the display today simply wasn't good enough.
"The lads know it wasn't good enough and so we have to go again next Saturday".
