Adams disappointed with squad discipline

Micky Adams has brushed aside a spat with substituted winger Jennison Myrie-Williams but he was still “disappointed with the discipline” of his side.

We gave away too many free-kicks and the best way to win games is by keeping 11 men on the pitch. We didn’t do that…

Tempers frayed as Adams and Myrie Williams were involved in a furious touchline row when the winger was substituted following Dan Jones’ dismissal.

“We are passionate people, but I don’t want to see it that’s for sure. It doesn’t look good and I didn’t like it but we will kiss and make up,” Adams said.

But Adams was upset by a bust-up between Chris Robertson and Tom Pope later in the game saying “That’s stupidity. I don’t want to see that. I have emphasised that to the players in the dressing room. If there are things to be said and done then we do it in the confines of the dressing room.”

“But I was disappointed with the discipline we showed to begin with. We gave away too many free-kicks and the best way to win games is by keeping 11 men on the pitch. We didn’t do that.

“We got a goal back and we frustrated them. The 10 men who stayed out there should be proud of themselves.

“But I don’t like being called unfortunate because that doesn’t sit well with me. We keep losing games by the odd goal and that’s not good.

“I honestly believe that if we’d kept 11 players out there on the pitch then we’d have gone on to win the game.

“Why? Because I don’t think Sheffield United are a very good side. Whoever comes in has got a very tough job on their hands because their squad of players just isn’t good enough. That will sound like sour grapes but it isn’t.”
