Devonshire Doesn't Want His Side To Be Second Best Again

Maidenhead United manager Alan Devonshire held his hands up after the Magpies lost 2-0 to Chester on Saturday - but wants them back in their air this weekend for another reason.

The former West Ham great was in no mood to offer excuses as his team became the first side to lose at the Deva Stadium in 15 matches. Watch Match Highlights Here.

Devonshire said the fact that Marcus Bignot was taking charge of his first Blues game had a lot to do with United’s loss in the north west.

Now he wants his side to brush off the loss and beat Guiseley in their next Vanarama National League match on Saturday.

He said: “I thought we were below par right from the first whistle, we just couldn’t get our game going which was frustrating.

“We were poor, man for man they were better - we need to make sure we’re better in our next match at home next weekend, that’s for sure.

“Chester outplayed us and we have to move forward. I think it was the wrong time to play them as there was clearly a reaction to their new manager coming in.“
