Speaking to the press, Wilkinson said: “They’d hardly been in our half during the first half, and then we end up giving away a penalty,” 

“Clarkey makes a decision and we end up getting penalised.

“They take theirs, and then we get an opportunity straight away at the other end but we miss ours. Unfortunately, that is the tale of the season so far.

“If we score, we’re back on level terms and the confidence levels go back up, but again we end up chasing the game because we don’t take advantage of the opportunity that came our way.

Wilkinson added: “The boys have been great today, I can’t argue with them. They competed really well, they worked hard, they gave me everything they possibly could.

“I’ve got no issues with that, it was just that little bit of quality again in the penalty area that’s cost us again.”
