Windsor FC boss Mark Cooper (above) was ‘the most animated he’s ever been’ after his side succumbed to another loss in the Hellenic Premier Division on Tuesday night.
The Royalists were defeated 3-2 on Saturday to Fairford Town before falling to the same outcome against Easington Sports just three days later.
Having gone 2-0 down in the first half, Dan Horscroft and Corey Parchment offered Windsor a glimmer of hope after the break and levelled the game in swift fashion.
But for all of their chances to snatch the victory, the Royalists came undone to their lack of clinical finishing and were ‘punished’ by their hosts late on.
“I’m tired of saying it but we keep missing chance after chance,” said Cooper. “It's so frustrating. We’ve scored two away from home in two games and that should be enough to win. But we’ve made mistakes, didn’t take the opportunities when they arose, and the oppositon punished us.
“At this level, teams normally need double or triple the amount of chances to score but seemingly at the moment every other team is capable of doing that. Yesterday (Tuesday) was probably the most animated I’ve ever been just to pure frustration,” added Cooper.
“While I believe we’ve been playing well in the majority of these matches and had the better of the games we’ve played, we can’t continue to make elementary mistakes. At some point the penny has got to drop and they've got to cut it out. We need to put games to bed early when we’re having the majority of the chances.”
Windsor travel to league leaders Binfield this Friday, 7:30pm kick-off.
