Grimsby Town were no better than Alfreton - Nicky Law
ALFRETON manager Nicky Law insists Grimsby Town were no better than his side on Saturday – despite the Reds’ 4-2 defeat.
The former Mariners boss watched his team take a first-half lead at Blundell Park, before the Conference leaders roared back to take three points.
He said: “They’re top of the league and I don’t mean to be disrespectful in any way, shape or form because they’re doing something right with the points they’ve got.
“But, for me, there isn’t a great deal of difference between the two teams – it’s just that one doesn’t make the stupid mistakes that we’ve been making all season.
“We’re making the wrong decisions defensively and if you do that, you’re going to concede goals.
“No one this season has opened us up and given us a good bashing. It’s been self-inflicted all the time with the basic schoolboy errors that we’re making.
“I’m not going to say ‘we’ve come to Grimsby and got beat 4-2 and oh well, we did well,’ because we didn’t.
“On Saturday’s performance, there was nothing between the two teams.”
