Bridlington Town manager Gary Allanson’s views on the 3-1 win over Reckitts in the East Riding Senior Cup quarter-finals.

“A good win for us in a hard fought game, but we are now into the semi-final and we can put this to the back of our minds for now and concentrate and pick points up in the league.

“We told the players before the game it was about the mental side of the game that would count on the night as Reckitts would come out, work hard and battle for everything and if we matched them for that our ability would come through.

“I think that came through in the end and our passing and movement was far superior and the chances we were creating it was only a matter of time before we would start converting some.

“Even though we went a goal behind, the way we were playing we were confident that when we got our first goal we would win the game.

“Credit to Reckitts, they were very organised and were very difficult to breakdown and worked very hard but I think we gradually ground them down with our possession and quality of our passing.

“Unfortunately we lost Ashley Allanson to injury and he joins Duka, Craig Hogg and Ryan Nichollson the sidelines.

“We also had Will Waudby, who has been doing really well for us, cup-tied because he had played for Beverley in a previous round which is really frustrating because the lad will now miss the next games. This will definitely be put right for next season. “Overall, a decent performance but the most important aspect was to win and we achieved this comfortably in the end.”

Town are at home to Liversedge in the NCEL on Saturday, kick off 3pm.
