Wellens Gutted Not To Pick Up Three Points

22 October 2017

Manager Richie Wellens was disappointed not to hang on to all three points following yesterday’s 4-4 draw with MK Dons.

Craig Davies opened the scoring before Eoin Doyle grabbed the second and was credited with the third. Peter Clarke scored the fourth goal but two goals in the final 10 minutes ensured MK Dons picked up a point.

Following the game, Wellens said: “It’s a weird stadium as there are hardly any fans here and it felt like a pre-season friendly.

“We went in the lead and I was happy and was happy to go end-to-end with them. We went in at 3-1 at half time and gave away a stupid foul on the edge of the area, but the lad does well to stick it in the top corner.

“We were in control at 4-2 but we just dropped too deep. It’s just a little sign of a team who panic.

“I don’t want them to panic or go negative on me. At 4-2, I wanted to go on and win 5-2 but we just dropped too deep.

“It’s a sickener to concede so late and when you come away from home and score four goals, you expect to win the game but I’m gutted to be honest.”

Queensy Menig started his first league game for the club and impressed during the first half.

“I thought we should have passed him the ball more,” admitted Wellens. “He was positive, he was taking players on and he was effective.

“Queensy, Doyle and Davies were a threat in the first half but the second half papers over what happened in the first half.”

Wellens highlighted the importance of getting a win on Tuesday night against Bury.

“If you would have said to me, you would come to Bradford and MK Dons and take a point from each, I would have accepted it as long as we win against Bury on Tuesday,” he explained.

“These points are good only if we beat Bury on Tuesday because these results keep our points tally ticking over.

“I just wanted us to be more positive and score the next goal and play higher but it just shows their is just a chink in our armour at the moment. I want us to be more ruthless.”
