Long Buckby manager Richard Kay believes Saturday’s 5-1 UCL Premier Division defeat at Wisbech was harsh on his team.

The Buckby boss felt key decisions at key times went against his team, and he also bemoaned his team’s lack of clinical finishing.

Writing on the United Counties League’s Facebook page, Kay said: “Again 5-1 looks like a comfortable win, but at 2-1 we should and could have equalised with 20 minutes to go.

“The first goal is a clear foul on our keeper, and basic decisions like that need to be seen and given.

“We scored a great goal and then for a 10-15 minute period Wisbech were in a complete panic.

“The third goal killed the lads’ spirit after working so hard to get back in the game. Again, it looked offside but over the two games Wisbech have taken their chances and we haven’t.

“I don’t think any other side over two games would have created 20 plus chances against a team flying and in the title race. The next 11 games there are a lot of points we can pick up, but we will see if it’s too late after the damage that has been done.

“We will keep fighting and with key players back I am looking forward to the upcoming seven or eight games.”

Buckby, who remain rooted to the bottom of the premier division table, are without a game on Saturday but travel to Desborough next Tuesday.
