Webb rues missed opportunities

Supermarine boss Dave Webb was left ruing a host of missed chances as his side slipped to defeat at Yate Town. Two late goals condemned Supermarine to defeat in South Gloucestershire, in what was only their third loss in the league this campaign.

And despite being pleased with his side’s showing, Webb admitted too many chances went begging for his side. “I don’t think the performance was bad at all to be honest,” he said. “It’s really difficult when you’ve dominated the game for the first 45 minutes and probably should have been two, three or even four in front.

“You see it many times in football, you don’t take your chances and take advantage when you’re on top and then you get punished.” Supermarine found themselves unfortunate not to be in front at the break after they struck the woodwork twice. Josh Parsons was the first to hit the frame of the goal on 28 minutes, with Connor Thompson unable to tuck home the rebound. Joe Selman then struck the post five minutes before the interval after great work from Parsons.

The theme continued in the second period, Parsons striking the outside of the post as Supermarine pressed for the opener before Ryan Campbell was forced off with an ankle injury. Harvey Rivers then produced fine save to deny George Kellow before a controversial moment four minutes from time.

As the game headed for a draw, Ryan Morgan was penalised for handball in the area, and Steve Davies found the bottom corner despite Josh Hill going the right way. With the visitors pushing forward in search of an equaliser, Davies curled home after a break away led by Jamie Clark-Samuel.
