Parr laments late penalty

Crewe FC 2 Rylands 1
DAVE Parr was disappointed with his men’s first-half showing and the way they conceded a late winning goal to Crewe FC in a thrilling finish to Saturday’s Division One contest An injury-time scrambled winner from young substitute Ben Burrow gave Crewe FC all three points.
It was rough justice for Rylands after they had recovered from a poor first half to dominate the second period and had seen a thunderous drive from Tebb hit the upright in the closing stages.
“I am at a loss to explain the first-half performance, which was unacceptable,” said Parr.
“We changed things slightly at half time and I was pleased with our attitude and commitment in the second half.
“I really felt we would go on and win the game after Jimmy Daniels’ superb goal and it was very disappointing to concede in the manner we did right at the end.
“I think Crewe played well in the first half and will cause teams problems this season, but we should have taken at least a point after the second-half showing.”
Little had been seen of Rylands as an attacking force until the 28th minute when Waldron played Slater through but his angled drive flashed inches wide.
The deadlock was broken on the half hour when a mix-up between Shakeshaft and Moor resulted in a corner kick not being cleared and ex-Macclesfield Town midfielder Matt Pearson converted.
Rylands levelled on the hour when Daniels placed a magnificent header beyond the Crewe netminder following a deep pass from his own keeper Moor.
A winner was sought.
Daniels went close with a lobbed effort, the home keeper saved well from Slater and a Pearson penalty was saved by Moor after a Sinker challenge on substitute PJ Hudson.
Substitute Warder’s close-range effort was cleared off the Crewe line and Tebb’s effort from the rebound of a free kick struck the inside of the post.
The clincher finally came from a Crewe corner deep into stoppage time, Moor failing to deal with the cross and Burrow forcing the ball home.
