“But it wasn’t to be today. We’ll dust ourselves down and go again on Tuesday.
“It was just a little bit of composure we were missing. We’ve got top players in that area and in the games coming forward we’ll get goals, I’m sure of it.

Of Mason Burstow’s opening goal early in the second half, Crainey reflected: “It’s disappointing to concede from a set-play.”
“They got the first contact but we didn’t tidy up from the second contact and then we’re behind.
“The whole team have been really good at set-plays, so we’ll dust ourselves off and go again.”
