Watch the highlights from the 1-0 defeat at the New Lawn, and listen to a disgruntled Town boss Ian Holloway’s thoughts on the game. 

Ollie was not happy at what he thought was some deliberate time-wasting from the home side tonight. 

Speaking on iFollow Mariners, he said: “Where did the balls go? That’s all I can say. 

“First half, all the balls were out there, they get them back really quickly. When they’re 1-0 up and it’s changed, the stewards are putting the ball in the corner so we can’t get them. What’s all that about then. 

“They’re a very good team, but what I’m saying is, how can that be right? Is that how you win is it? At all costs, make sure it takes ages to get the ball back?” 

On his team’s performance, Ollie Said: “I’m very proud of our performance tonight, because they’re a very good team. They scored a goal, but we should have more than equalised, and we had a lot more possession than them. 

“You could say they were hanging on – I don’t think so. I think we outplayed them, but we lost. 

“For my team, I’m delighted with that, but what I’m saying to the referee is how many times did we have to go and get the ball? It’s a lot more than three minutes at the end there.

“That’s not very nice, I don’t like that, and that’s not sportsmanship is it?"
