City Alerts: Lee's view on City v Dartford

LEE'S VIEW on City  1  Dartford   1

"I thought Dartford were a really good team - better than champions Woking, in fact - and so we did very well to take a point off them.  The fact that we also beat them away earlier in the season once again underlines our potential, for all the difficulties we've had this season.  I don't think we deserved to win on Saturday, but the way the game was going it began to look as if we could sneak the points.

"To concede the equaliser right at the death just about summed up our season!  We've had no problem creating chances and scoring, but we've shipped far too many goals - nearly two a game and the second highest in the league after Thurrock.  If you take away 20 of those goals, there would have been a lot more points to be had.  So we must work on that in the close season and maybe bring in one or two players defensively.  Defenders taking responsibility and marking their men has been our downfall.

"On Saturday, we battled hard and dug in deep.  Maybe I should have done things differently in the closing minutes - keep the ball in the corner instead of sending over crosses - but the pressure was off and there was nothing to play for except pride.  I can't thank the boys enough for all they've done this season, along with all the staff from the top down and all the fans who have been absolutely fantastic.  This is a very special group of people.  Everyone has worked fantastically hard."

Mike Truscott.
