Beadle Frustrated By Yate Goal

Peter Beadle Talking To His Squad Follwing Yesterday's Victory Over Yate Town
As usual after a game, Hereford manager Peter Beadle spoke to the local media following his side's 4-1 win over Yate Town.

Beadle started by admitting he had become a little frustrated by his players early in the second half when the score was 2-1.

"A little bit because I demand standards and I demand better from my team and as I said to them I'll never ever let up on demanding more from everybody.

"We started great again, the tempo was brilliant and then we made one mistake, they had their one shot on target in the whole game and they score from it.

"Then we huff and puff and create some chances and finally put one away and then I thought early part of the second half we just never seemed to get any momentum going, any rhythm going.

"I can understand it sometimes but it's frustrating stood on the side.

"It's interesting that Pablo, he sat there today and watched it, said to fair Gaffer I know why sometimes when we come in and we've won 2-1, you go mad, he said now I understand why. For twenty minutes we were not good."

Beadle admitted it wasn't as fluid as it might have been.

"For me it's tough to raise your game when things don't go well. So far we've played the top teams barring Taunton and Evesham. We've played Mangotsfield at home, we've played Shortwood and Marine, we've played Tiverton and North Leigh.

"And I know coming to those games I have no worries or concerns because those are the games the players know how important they are and how big they are. 

"No disrespect to Yate or Wantage or anyone like that but when we play those teams it's almost like we are relaxed and have a lackadaisical attitude and you try your hardest to make sure they don't have it but it's difficult when you are on the pitch and have as much possession as we do each game but I keep asking them about making sure we do basics better - for twenty minutes the basics were awful and we couldn't get any momentum going. 

"The first time we put a nice little move together I thought the cross was fantastic and we get the goal then all of a sudden we wake up and after that they can't get the ball off us. Bearing in mind I say this and they've not had a shot on goal other than the one shot they from scored from.

"And that's the frustrating side of it for me, it should be 4-0, it could be more, not 4-1."

Jamie Molyneux came off with an injury in the first half and Clayton Fortune was replaced at half-time.

"Clayton felt his hamstring the first time he chipped the ball into the front man and as he went to jog off it has cramped up a little bit so it's obvious he has strained it a little bit which is why he made the mistake for the goal. He knows he should have put his foot through it, I think that was why he sort of hesitated a little bit and gave the lad a chance to nick it. Hopefully it's only a strain and we've got him off earlier enough so it won't be too serious, too long.

"Jamie has just rolled his ankle so again I don't think he would have carried on but he is better in there now, he's moving better now. Hopefully the next 24/48 hours will be key for him to make sure he's okay."

It's ten days before the next fixture, away at Bishops Cleeve on December 27th, but Beadle has organised a work out for his players.

"We've already organised a behind closed doors game for Thursday. Obviously there are a lot of players at the moment who need some game time and what better way than to train then to have a game.

"So we will be working hard on Thursday and then the lads have got four days to recover before the game on the 27th and then we'll be in again on the 31st.

"There's no rest period and this is when sometimes things are won and lost. Teams that look after themselves best and prepare properly.

"I know we have a game on the 2nd and players might say get away after a 12 noon start and see the New Year in and have a few beers. I won't have that and if someone's off the pace I'll know exactly why.

"I thought last year we handled the period fantastically with the games we had and although AFC Wulfrunians handled us well on a difficult pitch we got through eventually. So nine points from three games ove Xmas was quite pivotal.

"So it's important that players do the same this year. One thing I know with the players here is that they don't let anyone get away with anything so it's important they look after themselves and we prepare as best we can and go to those games and try and do well."
