Aberystwyth Town First Team Player Coach Antonio Corbisiero has been reflecting on the Black and Greens’ home defeat to Airbus at the weekend last Sunday, and speaking with Aber Town's Youtube Channel, he was naturally disappointed with the outcome of the game, writes Matthew Wallace.
“It was a very disappointing performance. We played well in the first half and created a lot of opportunities. We dominated the first half but you have to take those opportunities and see the half out.”
Despite the disappointing scoreline, there were positives to take from the afternoon’s work:
“There were positives to take from the game today. Some of the boys put on some great performances but its individual mistakes that have costs us which has been the same for all the season really. Collectively as a team we’ve done well but we need to cut down on the individual mistakes”
However, it cannot be denied that this result is a big blow to the Seasiders’ chances of grabbing second spot in the league.
“We really needed the three points today to pile on the pressure in the hunt for second and third place. I think we’re now looking at second place being out of reach. We’d need a lot of results going our way and us winning our remaining games. “
But with three games left ahead of the playoffs, Corbisiero was keen to emphasise that this result must be put to the back of the mind.
“The boys have been fantastic throughout the season and addressed themselves well. We’ve got to concentrate now on finishing as high as we can. If we get it then great, if we don’t then it’s not a problem. We’ll have to work our way through the playoff and get into Europe that way.”
With the Welsh Premier League taking a break this weekend to allow the Welsh Cup Semi Finals to take place, Aber now take a timely break from activities before facing their final three games of the League Programme, away to TNS on Friday 10th April, at home to Bala on the 17th and away to Port Talbot on Sunday 26th.
Aber’s guaranteed fourth spot means that should they fail to qualify for Europe directly they will have a home game in the Play Off Semi Finals the weekend of May 9/10th.
