Parsley still angry with 'wasteful' Farsley players
Farsley boss Neil Parsley is such a hard taskmaster that merely extending their unbeaten run to three games last Saturday was not good enough.
The manager voiced his frustrations as he lamented two dropped points.
Farsley had won the previous two but had to settle for a draw against struggling Wake-field at Throstle Nest.
Looking back on the result, Parsley said: “It was not a scoreline that reflected the game in respect of our dominance. We should have won the game and it might have been by a landslide if we had taken our chances.
“Wakefield had a game-plan that they stuck to but it shouldn’t have mattered how the opposition played, we were at home and in good form. Their keeper made a couple of decent saves but I thought our strikers and midfielders were wasteful.”
Farsley had cantered to a 4-0 victory at promotion rivals New Mills and dispatched Padiham 4-1 at the Nest in the week before Wakefield’s visit.
Having conceded just two goals in the previous two games, Parsley’s men allowed Wakefield to score twice, the second one a stoppage time equaliser that cost Farsley two points.
That upset former Leeds, West Brom and Huddersfield Town defender Parsley.
“When you look at it and see seven points from a possible nine it is a decent haul,” he said.
“But when you are on top for so long like we were on Saturday it is about what should have been rather than what we got. Our form is good and our league position has improved but will those two points come back to haunt us?
“You have to be clinical and take every point you can get if you have any hopes of maintaining a serious push for promotion. We could end the season outside the play-off zone by one point. It’s too late to look back then.”
