Joint-manager reflects on Sudbury defeat

Redbridge joint-manager Dave Ross was disappointed with his side’s performance during their 3-1 Ryman One North defeat to Sudbury on Saturday.

A red card to Tyron Thomas during the second half effectively killed the game off as he was penalised for a foul outside the area.

The free kick, which was delivered into the box, was only half cleared and Michael Brothers acrobatically scored to make it 2-0.

Ross admitted the sending-off had a huge effect, saying: “It was a big impact on the game.

“Going down to ten men and especially losing Tyron Thomas, who has been playing very well lately, affected us.”

Motormen were able to pull a goal back despite being reduced to ten men as Eljay Worrell scored against his former club to grab his third goal of the season, and his first from open play.

But despite that effort, Redbridge went on to concede a third to lose by the same scoreline for the third consecutive match.

And although Ross said his team created chances, he was left dissatisfied with how they performed against the Suffolk side.

He admitted himself and joint-manager Ricky Eaton will be working hard this week to ensure a performance he described as ‘flat’ is not repeated.

He added: “We were creating chances but to be honest we didn’t play well all game.

“We were far too flat and that is something we need to work on.”

Redbridge face Tilbury tomorrow night at Oakside, kick off is at 7:45pm.
