Chatfield: "I'm disgusted with what I saw in the second half."

A "disgusted" Matt Chatfield slammed his side’s second-half performance as AFC were thumped by lowly Bottesford.

Despite a promising opening few minutes from the Bulls, loose screws at the back gifted their opponents the lead on yet another occasion, as Jack McMenemy punished Hugo Warhurst's early error.

A Jacob Fenton double early in the second period then opened the floodgates for the hosts, who rounded off the rout with further goals from Dayle Hutson and Daniel Boulton.

"There was nothing happening from anyone from the team and they looked like a group of 11 individuals," said the furious Bulls boss, who also insisted that changes will be made ahead of next weekend’s trip to Athersley Recreation.

"The game started with good tempo and we had good chances to go ahead like last week, but then that unfortunate error from Hugo led to them getting a foothold.

"We sat down with the lads at half-time and told them to keep the same attitude and we would get something from the game – obviously that didn’t happen and we fell apart."

The gaffer, whilst upset at his side's turnout after the break, credited Saturday's hosts and praised them for their perfect tactical awareness.

"Bottesford got what they deserved as they did a job on us in the second half and deserved to have beaten us by that amount.

"I'm absolutely disgusted with what I saw from the lads in the second half and we will be making personal changes this week, and things will change."
