Wood: We have to be better at seeing games out
SAM Wood said Wanderers have to learn to see games out after a stoppage time equaliser denied them a win at Accrington.
The hosts levelled three minutes into injury time to snatch a point from a 1-1 draw in a game where Wanderers had the lion's share of the possession and chances.
It came a week after Bury scored an 87th minute winner at Adams Park and Wood admitted the last minute concession was a kick in the teeth.
He said: "It was a big disappointment. I thought we were the better side over the game.
"We are normally good at finishing games well. We seemed to panic at the last minute and they scored in the last 20 seconds.
"We ground it out, got the goal and should have scored more goals if anything. That's where we've to learn, to ride things out.
"It's a hard place to come. To get a point here is a good point, but it's definitely two points dropped."
Wood added the conditions made it tricky for Wanderers to get into their usual passing groove.
Lightning flashed around the Crown Ground as the rain poured down and the wind made life difficult for both sides, with a goalkick from Stanley keeper Marcus Bettinelli barely travelling 30 yards before being held up in a strong gust.
It was the fourth game in succession to be disrupted by heavy rain and Wood said: "It's harder to control the ball when the wind's blowing around. But it's the same for both teams. We try to play, we did it sometimes today.
"I was on the bench at Portsmouth so I didn't get too wet. It's chilly up here as well, it wasn't too cold at Portsmouth. That's football, you've got to play the conditions."
