Manager Michael Flynn offered an honest assessment of the defeat to Cambridge United.
The Exiles fell to a second-half strike, against the run of play, from Liam O’Neil despite creating a number of chances themselves.
However, their failure to take their chances once against cost them with only two of their 19 shots testing U’s goalkeeper Callum Burton.
“I didn’t see that performance coming,” admitted Flynn.
“You can play well and lose to a counter [but] we were way off it today.
“The performance was nowhere near what we expect, what we work on and the levels that the players have been at lately.
“I’m a bit shell-shocked by what I’ve just seen.
“I couldn’t see anything other than a 0-0 because the game was that bad.
“They had a game plan to defend, I told the players at half time ‘they’ve come for the draw and the only way they are going to score is by something poor from us’ and we went and gave it to them.”
