Danny Bartle scored his first goal for the club in the defeat to Glossop
MANAGER Phill Hadland says there will be changes for the next game after questioning the desire of some players after the 2-1 home defeat to Glossop North End (Feb 25).
Yet again the Seagulls conceded goals in the last 11 minutes as Glossop came from behind to snatch victory and extend Bay’s winless run to 11 games.
After Scott Bakkor had a shot brilliantly tipped over the bar, Danny Bartle scored his first goal for the club to put the Bay in front at half-time from Danny Andrews’ run and cross.
But Glossop dominated much of the second half with the wind behind them and the introduction of Mark Reed and Dale Johnson from the bench turned the game.
Max Leonard equalised from a left win cross on 79 minutes and eight minutes later from a corner, after Sam Barnes had cleared a Reed header off the line, Reed rose at the far post to head the ball back across goal for Johnson to chest it over the line for the winner.
Bay had a couple of penalty shouts waved away, but failed to force a single save out of Cooper in the second half as their winless run was extended to 11 games.
Hadland said afterwards: “Last ten minutes again – its like a broken record.
“Its happening time and again and I have to question the attitude, work ethic and most of all the desire or certain players when we keep failing to see games out.
“Desire is not something you can give a player and we may have to look for other players who will show that.
“We did okay first half, but never got going in the second when we hardly got out of our own half and just invited pressure.
“I thought the lads who did well the previous week against Tadcaster deserved another chance, but there will be changes for Tuesday after this.”
Colwyn Bay: Kieran Wolland, Liam Turner, Matt Regan, Dan Collins, Gaz Grant, Sam Barnes (c), Scott Bakkor, Tom Schofield, Jamie Rainford, Danny Bartle (Julian Williams), Danny Anrdews (Will Booth 77). Subs not used: Chris Gahgan, Mike Pino, Mike Roddy.
THE Reserves had their home game against Trearddur Bay at the Llandudno Oval postponed. The match has now been rescheduled for next Saturday (March 4th).
