Manager John Gregory has confirmed that our lack of a cutting edge in the final third cost us in the loss to Preston North End on Saturday.
Speaking to the press following the one nil loss the manager had to admit that our inability to score of late was standing out like a sore thumb following games, and the real annoyance for him as he spoke to the Crawley Observer is that we are creating good chances so against Preston the very least he feels we deserved was a point, so to walk out with nothing was galling.
'We had good chances to get goals. The effort was there, the hard work, and everyone kept playing until the 93rd minute. The final ball from time to time just wasn't quite right. They had one real chance and they've taken it.'
Three games without a win, three defeats on the trot and three games where we have failed to convert our chances, and the gaffer says it is becoming our achilles heel at the moment and it has held us back from a late charge on the play off spots given the games we had in hand.
Gregory knows however that it's not something new to the team since he came in alongside Guy Whittingham, it has been an issue for us all season long in one shape or another.
'Before I came there was a huge problem of not creating enough chances. In the last three games we've had chances and not taken them. It stands out like a sore thumb, and that's the way our season is at the moment.'
One thing Gregory can't fault though is the effort that the team are putting in, so he just hopes we do get that rub of the green in future games and something turns for us in front of goal again and we start getting the results he believes our efforts deserve again.
