‘Garbage’ was how St Albans City joint manager James Gray described Monday night’s goalless draw with Biggleswade Town at the Carlsberg Stadium.
Neither side created much in the way of chances and the fluidity of the game was broken by too many long balls and wayward passing.
In his post-match interview, Gray conceded it wasn’t a good game.
“Tonight is a write off,” he said.
“We tried to get [the win] but it was a game too far and it wasn’t good enough; we looked lacklustre and void of ideas going forward.
“The lads have said they found it tough playing three away games in six days but I feel it’s two points dropped but the players said it was a harder game that it may have looked from the sideline.
“But, we’re a point closer to where we want to be.”

Gray admitted his disappointment stemmed from his confidence coming into the game, especially off the game of Saturday’s vital win against Stourbridge.
“I can’t be too harsh but I’m always disappointed if we don’t win three points,” he said.
“I was confident coming in after Saturday, way we set up and got at them, but it didn’t work out that way. The clean sheet is a positive but we need to be better on Saturday.”
