Wakehurst boss Paul Muir admitted it was a case of “back to the drawing board” after his side’s 5-1 weekend defeat to Limavady United in NIFL Championship Two.
“It seems to be we are creating our own downfall with silly mistakes,” reflected Muir after his side came unstuck against one of the favourites for promotion.
“We were 1-0 down at half time but we got ourselves back into the game with a smashing strike into top corner from Jake Armstrong, who has done very well since stepping up from the Saturday Morning League to Championship Two level.
“We actually got ourselves on top at that stage however after another mistake we went 2-1 down and got punished badly after that.
“One plus point was that striker Peter Adams came on in the last five minutes to make his competitive debut for the first team after impressing for the Reserves in recent weeks,” added Muir.
The result still leaves Wakehurst occupying one of the potential relegation places, with Championship Two being cut to 12 teams from next season.
And the Ballymena men face another tough test this Saturday at leaders PSNI.
