Manager says it's a game his side 'should never have lost'

FC Isle of Man's manager says his side's narrow defeat to Vauxhall Motors was a match 'they never should have lost'.

Both sides were level at 0-0 at half-time, with the Ravens creating good opportunities in the first half, including Jack Camarda seeing his strike hit the crossbar.

However, Vauxhall Motors took the lead on 53 minutes through a Ben Holmes penalty before Bobbie McDonnell doubled their lead on 76 minutes.

Jack McVey pulled a goal back for the Manx side deep into second half stoppage time but it didn't stop FC IoM going down 2-1 come the final whistle.

The Island team have a quick turnaround for their next league fixture away against Padiham tomorrow night (23 August) at 7.45pm.

Ravens Manager, Chris Bass, told the club's official website they need to be more proactive to get on the front foot in games:
