Tose rues missed chances, but praises City’s character as they draw with Cheadle Town.

Carlisle City manager James Tose was left frustrated by his sides’ finishing, despite coming from behind to draw 2-2 with mid-table Cheadle.

City went in at half time a goal down, but equalised early in the second through Daniel Greenslades’ header. Cheadle restored their lead within two minutes, before top scorer McCartney restored parity just after the hour mark.

Both sides had chances to win the game in the closing stages, with a number falling the way of the Sky Blues.

“Personally I think it’s a little bit frustrating. I think its two points dropped judging by the clear cut chances at the end”, said Tose.

“I think last season we would probably be over the moon with a point but this season with the way that the lads have been playing and with the belief in the camp. I think it’s very much the two points dropped because we felt that was a game, especially at home as well, that we were quite capable of winning. But at the same time I’m over the moon with the character of the team”.

“To be fair to the lads we’ve been creating that amount of chances in most games and we keep saying that someone is going to get a hiding off us, and hopefully that might make it easy for me on the side line and win three, four nil and let us relax a little bit but we just seem to make it hard for ourselves” adds the City boss.

We are creating chances and it’s a good thing to be doing. there’s a lot worse things the manager could be saying, I would be worried if we weren’t creating anything. I’m not disappointed I’m more frustrated really because I believe we deserved the 3 points – JAMES TOSE, CARLISLE CITY

“I don’t know if we are just missing that clinical goal scorer or just somebody who can be calm under all that pressure that is going on you know, somebody who can show that bit of composure, it think that’s the only thing that kind of lacked with the chances today and of late really”.

Despite the chances to win the game, Tose was pleased his side where able to recover from going behind twice to get something from the game; “It’s not easy to come back from one-nil down and then 2-1 down, I think it shows real character to be able to do that and then to push on again and try and win a game. A lot of teams, their heads might have dropped there, especially in the way it happened, using all that momentum and energy into equalising early in the second half and then after two minutes to concede”.

“They (Cheadle) were quite an awkward team to play against. It was difficult and its one of them days where the point is well worth it and at the end of the day both teams will reflect on it and say I’m happy with that”.
