Swindon Supermarine boss Lee Spalding was “very disappointed” his side did not earn at least a point at home to Truro City on Saturday.
Despite enjoying a fantastic start when Brad Hooper scored on six minutes, the sending off of Matt Liddiard left Supermarine down to 10 men for the remaining 65 minutes of the match.
Spalding admitted this was a turning point but after his side held on to their 1-0 lead at the break, the pressure told on the home side as Truro eventually took a 2-1 lead.
Harry Williams though levelled with three minutes left but poor defending minutes later allowed Truro to nick a winner and the manner in which Marine conceded that goal left Spalding extremely frustrated.
“Obviously disappointed in the result,” said Spalding. “I thought we started really well. Before the sending off I thought we were by far the team on top, thought we looked a threat every time we got on the ball.
“The sending off changed things. We came in 1-0 up and we knew it was going to be a hard half. I knew it was going to be a tough ask.
“Thought the lads were excellent. We made it difficult for them. To get back in the game at two each I was very, very disappointed that we have conceded in the way that we did. It was a poor goal to give away.
“Ten men, nine men, you can’t defend like that in your own box.”
