Kelly: “I Know We Are Capable Of Better.”

19 August 2015

Manager Darren Kelly was disappointed to only come away with a point after yesterday’s goalless draw with Colchester United.

Lee Croft had Latics’ best chance of the game on the hour mark but U’s goalkeeper Elliott Parish pulled off a wonder save to deny the midfielder.

That was the best it got for Latics and the gaffer admitted he expected more from his players. 

He said: “I know we are capable of better. We just didn’t have enough in the locker to win the game but the lads battled tremendously like always and it’s about us getting ourselves ready for Saturday. 

“We had a good couple of chances to win the game that but it just wasn’t to be. I’m pleased with how we looked out of possession and the way we looked defensively. I’m just disappointed we didn’t get the goal at the end.

"I’m greedy and would like more points. I have high expectations, especially with the squad we have. I’m looking forward to the next game and hopefully we can get three points in the bag.”

Captain Liam Kelly limped off in the second half with a suspected knee injury and the manager gave an update on his situation.

"He is just being assessed now by the physio but hopefully everything should be okay. We should know more in the next 48 hours,” said Kelly.
