Listen to what a frustrated Paul Hurst had to say after today’s defeat at Newport County, and watch the goal that sank his Mariners’ side - was it offside?   

Despite his frustration, Hurst felt there was more than enough encouragement for his side to take.

He said: “We dominated a lot of that game, and obviously with the sending off you’d expect to have more of the ball.

“But I have to say, until the sending off, we were totally dominant, and actually looked like a team. I said that at half time, and I said it afterwards.

“Despite the frustration of not creating enough when they were down to 10 men, I think that looked more like a team that you would feel more confident about getting results.

“We’re stuck in a difficult period, of course we are, but I’m trying to be sensible about it all, and I’d have to say there’s a lot more positives there. That’s the best we’ve played by some distance.

“They’ve got some good players, and I think we didn’t really see them, or very little of them because of how we got on top of the game.

“At the same time, I’d rather be in Michael Flynn’s shoes, and you’re talking perhaps about a gutsy performance and a poor performance initially.

“We were slow to start the second half, and I’ve said that’s what has cost us the game for me.”
