Feeney deflated after Welling loss
Feeney deflated after Welling loss

Warren Feeney’s Welling United were washed ashore as they stumbled to a home defeat against the Beachboys of Concord Rangers. After the game. Feeney described his feelings as “Deflated, gutted and very, very disappointed.”

He continued: “Even in the first half I didn’t think we were good enough. We didn’t move the ball quickly enough. There there was an acceptance, we should enjoy playing football here.”

“We went over everything. We changed the warm up side, the starting side, and I just can’t get my head round what the problem is, I spoke to them in there. The decision making at times, and the lack of desire. They lose their confidence when they concede a goal, to get back in the games is the worrying thing for me.”

Just after going behind in the first minute of the second half player coach Sam Cox was shown a second yellow card and was dismissed. Feeney said: “I don’t think the first one was a yellow card. The second one, he said he shouldn’t have dived in.

“The decision making in the second half for the goal I said to Taylor (Maloney) in there he’s just got to hook that ball over his shoulder. I don’t know why he’s playing that volley towards Dunney (James Dunne). You just hook that over your shoulder into the striker’s run and that sets the tempo. It was a crazy one minute thirty.”

Feeney admitted how painful it was for him. “It hurt for me today. The worrying problem is we need to score goals. We can’t score goals. In the first half you could quite clearly see there’s balls in the box but collectively as a team we need to start getting on the end of them.”

Aaron Barnes limped off to add to Welling’s woes. Feeney said: “Injury wise, we’ve got a few injuries. We’ll have to dust them down. We’ve got a game on Tuesday night that we’ll mix it up a wee bit because we’ve just got to get these points to get us over the line.

“It’ll be a bit of a chance for some of the boys to get some minutes under their belts. It will be a difficult game, but we’ve got games coming up it will give them a chance of getting a game on Tuesday night.”

Although Welling are now looking over their shoulders, they have a buffer and Feeney attested: “We need a wee bit of momentum. We’re still in a good position. It’s not one that I want to be in but we need to get that momentum and get that win. It creates that wee bit of belief. It’s the lack of confidence at the minute, I don’t know why. We don’t put ourselves in the position that we’re going to score goals.”

Points mean everything now and Feeney added: “We might have to just go ugly, and play the ugly way. We were trying to keep the ball in the first half but it might be just percentages and trying to do what teams do to us most of the time and trying to put balls into areas where it’s going to affect them, but even when we do that, we’ve got to be on the end of them.”
