Manager’s verdict: Portsmouth – The News

Tino Mamria thought the 2-0 defeat to promotion-chasing Portsmouth was harsh on his Brewers side.

Albion were playing well until conceding a penalty on 38 runsTh The minute Colby Bishop converted the spot kick.

They started the second half well but conceded a second goal on 63 minutes and then added salt to the wounds when Steve Seddon was sent off for a second bookable offence.

Mamria said: “The result was very harsh for us. On 37 minutes we were on top of the game; Asked them questions, their keeper made an unbelievable save from Kwadwo Bah, then we made a bad decision and gave them a penalty.

“It changed the game and when you give a team like Portsmouth a leg up it makes life very difficult.

„Then we started the second half on the front foot and stopped in their half but we couldn’t get a goal and then they scored from the conversion. If you give them goals like we got tonight, it’s game over against these teams.

“But I can’t complain about the performance which was great.

„The story tonight was that we shot ourselves in the foot twice. It was one of those nights, but it wasn’t because we lacked effort. We needed a goal but weren’t clinical enough in the final third. They defended their goal well, but we should have asked more questions of their keeper.

The Brewers now face a blank Saturday before traveling to Wrexham on Tuesday 32nd last in the Bristol Street Motors Trophy.

Maamria said: “We’ll get some training and have John Brayford back for Wrexham on Tuesday.
