A tough afternoon for the Ammies as Gary Bowyer was left disappointed with the manner of the second half goals conceded at Forest Green Rovers.   

Salford took a lead in the 16th minute through Brandon Thomas-Asante after he got on the end of a looping ball from Ibou Touray, doing well to bring it down and then finished clinically on the half volley.

However league leaders Forest Green responded just before half time with a free kick scored by Nicky Cadden, making it 1-1 after a thrilling first half.

The second half was a lot tighter but it was Forest Green who went onto score two goals and take all 3 points, leaving Salford with five defeats on the road.

Gary Bowyer, praised his sides first half performance but was disappointed with how the second half panned out and how his side conceded:

“Even in the first half, without us playing as well as we have been playing, we still had chances and still made their goalkeeper make good saves.

“The manner of the last two goals is poor from us in terms of how we gave the ball away, our reaction to it and our defending.” 

The Gaffer also touched on the injury problems The Ammies are facing right now;

“We lost Ash Hunter, we lost Connor McAleny this morning which disrupts us further and at half time we lost Corrie Ndaba. 

“We carried a threat even with the disruption, that’s now 10 players missing which is a lot. No excuses, it provides opportunities for people and some took it today, one or two a little disappointing.

“We will get one back for next week, Jason Lowe. It’s what happens through the course of the season.” 

The Ammies are back at the Peninsula Stadium next week to face Exeter City.
