Chris Willcock gave his post-match thoughts following the Rams 2-1 home win against Ossett United which meant the Rams have won their first four games of the new season.

The gaffer gave an honest assessment and despite winning, was frustrated with the second half display compared to the first half.

“The way the game finished words can’t really describe it to be honest with you”, said Willcock.

“I was just really disappointed with the second half performance, first half in control of the game and we created some fantastic opportunities and the game should have been over at half time.”

“We didn’t take our chances in the first half and that galvanised them at half time, I thought second half they came out and did really well and we dropped off. The kind of levels that we’re hoping to get some consistency to weren’t there second half and the game was wide open.”

However, the manager was pleased that the lads attitude to keep on going until the end and found that all important winner.

“To win the game in that fashion is always a massive positive because it shows that we’ve got good character and keep going even though second half we weren’t at our best.”

“First half I was more than happy at half time with the number of chances that we created and if we’d took them really the game wouldn’t have ended the way it was, I think as a spectacle for everybody it was fantastic!”

He also praised the way the opposition played compared with the FA Trophy games a few weeks back.

“You have to give Ossett full credit, I did say on Thursday that it will be a more tougher game and they certainly changed the way they played than the way they did in the FA Trophy.”

“Overall delighted with the three points and we move on to Tuesday.”

You Rams!
