The thoughts of Big Sam after draw against Carlton Town

Here is what Whites boss Big Sam Wilkinson thought about his team’s 1-1 draw against Carlton Town in the Evo-Stik South League on Bank Holiday Monday.

I was disappointed with the result but quite pleased with the performance.

“In a strange way I feel lots more positive today than after our draw at Belper Town.

“When you look at it on paper, when the opposition goes down to 10 men and you go a goal up, you should win the game.

“But credit to Carlton who made it so hard you wouldn’t have noticed they only had 10 men.

It actually galvanised them a little more.

All in all I was pleased with our performance but not the result as we wanted three points.

We were delighted to go in 1-0 at half-time although we probably didn’t deserve to be in all fairness.

Against 10 men you need to get a second goal and we had the chances to do it.

It was actually a fair result in the end so credit must go to Carlton.

I think they are the best team we have played so far this season.”
