Sidmouth Town boss Josh Stunell was left disappointed with his sides result in the single goal loss at Galmpton United.
The Vikings chief said: “It’s three points lost, no doubt about it.
“They [Galmpton] were a man down for just over half the game and I fancy we p[perhaps trooped off at the break with a little complacency in mind that the goal would simply ‘happen’ for us.
“What we needed was that all-important first goal, we didn’t get it and that always leaves you susceptible to a blow the longer the contest goes on and that is precisely what happened to us.”
Stunell continued: “Galmpton are a hugely experienced side and know how to manage such games, but for me it’s certainly a case of three points dropped.”

Stunell was rich in his praise of 16-year-old Charlie Skilton who impressed on his Town debut.
The Town boss explained saying: “Charlie [Skilton] is a lad I first encountered at the youth system up at Yeovil Town and, more recently, he has been with Exeter City who released him recently. The lad can play, that’s a given, and he has great technical ability and is one of those players who you can ask to do a job and it will be done to the letter.”

Stunell continued: “When City let him go I was quickly in touch to invite him to come and train with us and keep himself fit and he did just that. When our left back was unavailable for the trip to Galmpton I had no hesitation in giving Charlie a start and he was superb.
“He will be with us again on Saturday when we host Brixham at Manstone Lane.”
