8:02am Monday 23rd September 2013 in Football
JAMES Beattie was rued his side’s failure to take their chances in Accrington Stanley’s 2-1 home loss to Rochdale.
The Reds slipped to their eighth straight defeat after being unable to overturn an early 2-0 deficit, despite playing against 10 men for 45 minutes.
Beattie said: “If we take our chances then we’re talking about a different result.
“The lad getting sent off gave us an advantage but we didn’t capitalise on it in the second half “We started the game totally the opposite to how I and the players wanted to stat it.
“We gave away two sloppy goals. Then we’re facnig an uphill battle.
“When we’re in periods in games when we’re dominating, we need to convert chances.
“We’re disappointed and we’re in a bit of a habit at the moment of losing games, which is a very bad one to have.”
