AFTER watching his side fall to a 1-0 defeat in Llandudno, director of football Andy Preece refused to be downhearted.

"I'm not disappointed at all because I think the lads have again dragged themselves up, there were a lot of tired legs out there," he said.

"But we pretty much dominated the game so I can't be disappointed with the performance when you come here against a team that's doing so well and pretty much dominated the play without creating the chances.

"We missed a crucial one and I think that if we had scored that (penalty) we would probably have gone on to win the game.

"But credit to Llandudno today, they defended really well, they were dangerous on the counter attack and we just have to take that on the chin."

Preece felt that Dave Roberts' save from Tom Field's penalty was probably the game changer.

"The momentum was with us and we were pretty much dominating possession and dominating the game that way so you'd expect us to go on from there," he went on. 

"Football changes, they might have come out and tried to win the game, you don't know, but you can't afford to miss chances like that. Tom is normally really reliable, it was a good save but we have to be ruthless if we are going to get results here."

Referee Kris Hames only gave two minutes of added time and Preece added: "Five subs have come on and he put two minutes up and I think there were a couple of other delays.

"I don't want to talk about decisions, people can see it on TV, see the last two penalty decisions we didn't get, there was one today on Chris Budrys, he is adamant again that it was.

"I'm not going to say it was, it's a waste of time really talking about decisions."
