Another Two Points Dropped - Laws

Brian Laws has revealed his disappointment following the one all draw against Northampton today, as he feels it was another two points dropped.

Statistics wise it was a reasonably even game, and both teams had a host of chances so overall maybe a point was the fair result, but Laws can't help feel that we had enough good clear cut chances to win two or three games, therefore it just goes down as another two points dropped as we bid to really get ourselves off to a flyer.

Scunthorpe took the second half lead, before Northampton equalised shortly after and as Laws spoke to the Official Site you got the feeling it was another of those games that we have been all too accustomed to so far this season with draws dominating our results list, when on another day they would've resulted in maximum points.

'It's disappointing, as it has been over the last few weeks. We've created enough opportunities to win two or three games today, so it's probably the best we've been in terms of creating chances. There are a lot of positives to come out of the game but we're again looking at a case of another two points dropped.'

With more chances created Laws was rightly pleased, but again we lacked the clinical edge to actually take advantage of them, and the manager feels that very few would have begrudged us a victory today had we managed to find the net a second time.

Especially with how comfortable we were at points, and how we handled Northampton when they had their period on top and rallied back.

The manager also confirmed that Christian Ribeiro was substituted with injury in the early stages of the first half but the player will have to be assessed before a judgement in made on how bad the knock he took might be.

Laws pleasingly was also able to admit that he thought the players responded well to the shake up that his substitution caused as they didn't let it affect them and they dealt with their positions admirably.
