Abbott blasts under-par Carlisle

22 March 2009 05:15
Goals from Peter Clarke, Alan McCormack and a first professional strike from Damian Scannell made it nine wins in 12 matches for the Shrimpers, and left Abbott offering a frank assessment of his side's shortcomings.

"We did not deserve to win and we have been beaten by the better side," said Abbott. "We plan all week for a match and then when it comes to the game the players let us down.

"Once we were 1-0 down we had a mountain to climb.

"We definitely need a result now on Tuesday night when we play Hereford and I have just got to pick the players up ready for that game."
