Kevin Blackwell: Under pressure from fans

Kevin Blackwell: Under pressure from fans

The Shakers remain rooted to the foot of npower League One despite taking the lead through Craig Fagan and playing against 10 men for the majority of the contest following George Porter's fourth-minute sending-off.

"I'm full of praise for the players, they were terrific," said Blackwell. "It just didn't fall for us.

"There seemed to be a force field around their goal. We've had 51 crosses, 16 shots on target and 15 off.

"When you're at the bottom, you've missed chances and the fans are frustrated it's easier to hang the manager out to dry.

"But I don't know what else I could have done other than gone on and scored myself.

"If we'd scored six or seven you'd have been eulogising, but we lost and suddenly the whole thing changes.

"Other than deal with two or three chances a bit better, what more can you ask the players to do?

"I've got no complaints with them. I feel for them but that's the way it is, when you're down there you get kicked in the teeth."
