The Dolphins were outplayed by Bognor on Tuesday night according to the manager but did beat Weston Super Mare 2-1 on the first day of the season.
Although happy with a win and a draw, the Poole manager held his hands up to the Daily Echo.
“Tuesday was a disappointing night but we have acquired four points from our opening two games and, in this league, that’s a very satisfactory return, so I am not going to be too hard on the players,” Killick said in his interview.
“Thankfully, it’s not something I have to say too often when we play at home but Bognor were the better side.
“They dominated possession and created the better opportunities to an extent, so we have to reflect on that. A lot of that was down to how good Bognor were but some of it was down to inadequacies on our part.
“People get too carried away. They look at the game and think ‘well Bognor are a much better side than Poole’ well, no. Bognor are a good side but they were better than us on the night.”
He added: “I am confident in what my group of players will do over the course of the season, against Bognor we didn’t have a very good night.
“The players weren’t at their best but they still came very close to winning the game and I think that speaks volumes.”
