St Albans “unlucky” to leave Bromley pointless - Gray

James Gray believes St Albans City were unlucky to leave Bromley’s Fortress Stadium without any points on Saturday.
The Saints had seemingly earned a deserved point against second-placed Bromley but Moses Ademola came off the bench and produced the game’s sole bit of quality in the final third to snatch all three points.
Speaking after the game, Gray said: “I didn’t think there was a lot between the two sides. I thought we stuck to game plan and performed well against a side well-known in the league, which has good resources and are near the top of the league.
“I was pretty pleased how we performed on a cabbage patch. I’m just disappointed with the way they got their goal. But again, the boys stuck to the task really well and were unfortunate to be on the losing end of that game.
“It could have easily been a draw and it would have been deserved.”

City changed formation for the match, opting for two up front with Cameron Lancaster, making his first start, alongside John Frendo – the partnership lasted less than 30 minutes as Lancaster limped off injured.
“We tried to contain them and hit them on the counterattack, and I think it worked but we lacked the killer punch and a bit of luck. The little things went against us but overall I’m pleased with the performance,” he said.
