💬 Matt Taylor post Hartlepool United (H)

Manager's post match thoughts

29 January 2022

City boss Matt Taylor has given his assessment as the Grecians were held to a goalless draw by ten-man Hartlepool United at St James Park.

Nicky Featherstone's 53rd minute gave City hope, but they couldn't break down a resolute Hartlepool defence who prevented any chance of a Grecians winner. 

"We didn't get the ball in the right areas often enough," Matt said. 

"I'm disappointed, and I think the players are very disappointed too. We lacked movement, we lacked sharpness. We reset a few things at half time and tried to refocus.

"The sending off changed a few things in terms of space, but we just didn't ask enough questions of their back line."
