DRUIDS slipped to another defeat to remain deep the relegation scrap, leaving joint boss Waynne Phillips to reflect on his side’s recent goal drought.
“We deserved something from the game, the performance was 100 times better than when we lost by six to Bangor last Tuesday night,” he said.
“But we need to start scoring more goals. We had three or four good half chances, but we needed a bit more quality and composure in the final third of the pitch. At the end of the day, it’s another three points dropped and hurts just as much.”
Druids started brightly with Karl Connolly and Osian Jones linking well before Jones shot narrowly wide, while Mike Thompson hit the bar with a right wing corner and Jones was unable to cash in with a free header.
And it was somewhat against the run of play that the steelmen took the lead on 11 minutes as Martin Rose’s header looped into the net from Lee John’s corner from the left.
But there were very few other opportunities in front a disappointingly sparse crowd at Plaskynaston.
