Sleaford Town boss Glen Maddison has told his players ‘it’s time to stand up and be counted’.
This was the message after witnessing Saturday’s 3-0 defeat away at Wellingborough Town.
“I don’t think they all stood up and were counted,” he added. “Some of them had a grumble at the end of the match, which I don’t have an issue with but I think some of them need to look at their own performances.”
He said Saturday’s defeat – and goals conceded – were mostly of Town’s making.
“We dominated the first half but then conceded a penalty right on the stroke of half time and that changed the whole aspect of the game,” said Maddison.
Following the break, the visitors saw Nick Bishop sent off – when ‘harshly’ adjudged the last man in the eyes of Maddison.
He also said the pitch, which he described as ‘horrendous’ had its part to play.
Town now face a weekend off, with Saturday’s away trip to Yaxley postponed.
Sleaford’s next game is now due to be away at Irchester United.
