TNS paid for missing chances, including a penalty spurned by Greg Draper, at in the goalless draw at Park Hall on Tuesday against visiting Town, who finished the contest with 10 men.

The Australian coach was also unhappy with the officials’ decision to chalk off a late goal. He said: “My one major emotion is anger at not being able to score late in the game.

“I don’t think it’s through anything we could’ve done more, we had the penalty – I’d never blame an individual player for that – we pushed until the end, goal-line clearances, saves, then we had a goal at the end that I felt and people on that side felt was a goal but the referee gave a free-kick.”

Limbrick added: “If we’d have got that first goal we’d have got two or three. It’s a disappointing result in the context of where we are going into these final days.”
