Ryman North: Redbridge 0 Cray Wanderers 1
Redbridge joint-manager Dave Ross believes the Motormen were beaten by the better side in their 1-0 defeat at home to Cray Wanderers.
The Oakside Stadium club had been hoping to increase their recent unbeaten run to four matches.
Chris Piper struck the decisive goal for the visitors in the 36th minute and Ross feels the result was justified.
“It was a bad day at the office. The best team won. Cray were decent. They played some nice football at times,” said Ross.

“We let them play, which was disappointing. It was poor especially after our last three games. It’s like we’ve taken a step back.
“The boys have just go to get their heads down and start again in the next match against Thamesmead Town.”

Victory over second-bottom Cray would have seen Redbridge move 10 points clear of the relegation zone with just eight games remaining.
As things stand the Oaksiders are only seven points above 23rd-placed Barkingside, who have two games in hand, and Ross believes his side missed an opportunity against the Wands.
“A win against Cray would have given us a bit of a gap over the bottom three. Now we’re right in the mix again and that’s because we never performed,” added Ross.
“The whole team disappointed me and Ricky Eaton. Normally you come of a bad performance with something that can lift you.
“But there was nothing good to come from the Cray game. It was a poor, below-par performance.”
