EbeneInfo – GB – Appleton on Major Selection Call and New Sub Rule


A summary of what the Imps boss had to say after the 0-0 draw at Accrington Stanley

Lincoln City got what could turn out to be a decent point in a goalless draw at fit Accrington Stanley

The Imps were wronged after failing to receive a second-half penalty after substitute Brennan Johnson appeared to have slumped into the box, while Stanley saw Sean McConville sent off for a challenge against Lewis Montsma

« It depends on how the game is going, but they had a good run and didn’t concede a lot of goals so maybe But I’m frustrated that I didn’t break the deadlock We took good positions so many times The goalkeeper made some good saves and there was a penalty that should have been

« It’s just like frustration a minute. I can assure you that no one in the locker room is happy to take a point

« In view of all this I expected more from us Maybe I have too high expectations of them We’ll see and find out Tuesday night [in Swindon, if that’s a good point] because I guaranteed we’ll be better on Tuesday than we were today »

« It looked like a stone wall The guys looked puzzled it wasn’t given For him [Johnson] being reserved in the back was a little embarrassing

« But there was still a lot of time in the game and we had plenty of opportunities where we could have done a little better work »

« Maybe Obviously I don’t know that for definite It looks like this because I felt he should have had another one in a recent game

« I don’t know if the referees talk to each other, but the reality is that these are all penalties [the ones he won], no one really complained about them and they wouldn’t have complained today »

“He joined us yesterday [following an international mission with Wales] The work he has done over the past few weeks is 40% of what he would normally do with us, so I thought it would be a better option, when the games opened up a bit, to bring it

« We were up against a fit team and we had to make sure we were in the game

« It wasn’t necessarily Harry [Anderson] who was going to be sacrificed, it was something I had in my head – if we could get to half-time or 50-55 minutes – that we would present it « 

« It doesn’t matter what I think At the end of the day we’re a small team, we’ll try to use this change as well as possible

« Would I be in favor of this in the long run? » No Sometimes it can affect your decision making during the game Sometimes you can do something early instead of waiting until half time

« There will be someone – I don’t think it will be me – who will do five subs at halftime »

« If the laws say it’s a referral, I understand In my day it probably would have been a reservation

« We should have taken the opportunity to take an advantage at this point You could say we were a little unlucky not to

« But me, with my raw emotions now, I’m more frustrated and a little angry that we haven’t taken control »

« He became the game He got into midfield sometimes We made a little change after about 20 We changed him and Jacko [Adam Jackson] so we could get Lewis more on the ball, naturally on his right side

« He [Montsma] will make mistakes because we want him to do what we saw today, to step in [in midfield] and to be positive You have to expect that. make one or two mistakes

« He left training yesterday with a bruised hip, it was really late

« Sam [young guard] didn’t stay at the hotel until late last night We know Sam is more than capable if he ever needed to come »
