Kee fumming after Coagh game

INSTITUTE manager Paul Kee was furious following his side’s shock home defeat to Coagh United, on Saturday.

Kee was bitterly disappointed by ’Stute’s terrible first half display, which saw them concede three goals and despite scoring twice after the break the Waterside man still wasn’t happy, in fact he apologised to the home support.

“It’s absolutely unacceptable and I’m very disappointed, there was a good support out on Saturday and I’d like to apologise to the supporters. I appreciate them coming and I hope we can rectify that and put it right for them,” conceded the ’Stute gaffer.

“I’m disappointed with our petulance and our play, I thought we were well below par and some people need to have a good look at themselves.”

The Drumahoe man also admitted that a foot injury to Aaron Walsh, meant it really was a bad day at the office for his team.

“We go out and have a couple of poor performances from individuals and then we get a bad injury to (Aaron) Walsh, so it has been a bad day at the office.

“The second half obviously we expected us to go out and pick it up, but totally unacceptable first half cost us, we were blasé, arrogant and some people need to wake up and smell the coffee because if they think it’s going to be a stroll through the league, then they are badly, badly mistaken.

“And the players were warned about Coagh, we had a match report done on them, but credit to them, they deserved the three points because they hung in at it,” he added.

Kee also believed that despite conceding a penalty in the first minute, his team still had plenty of time to get back into the game, he was more frustrated at the manner of which they conceded United’s two other goals before the interval.

“It’s not the start you were looking for, but you still have plenty of time, to turn things around; it’s not the first goal that annoyed me, it’s the second and third goals as well, they were absolutely disgraceful.

“The fact that we’ve had to dig out a second half performance is not acceptable. The second goal Marty Gallagher’s spilled it, it was a lack of concentration, a basic shot, he should have saved it; then the third goal, Joe Gray gives the ball away when we’re trying to build the play, it was disappointing because Joe’s a very experienced player.

“It’s back to the drawing board, this result against Coagh will give us the kick up the backside we need.”
