As expected, Ronnie Moore was a disappointed man after his team failed to make the play-offs after a disasterous run-in to the seasons end. Moore told the official site, "If you only take one point from 15 in the last month of the season you are certainly not going to go up. Basically, that is what has happened. We haven't made the play-offs because we can't defend, the goal today was straight through the middle, no tracking, no talking and their lad has put it in the back of the net. We have had problems with the centre back position, but you can't make excuses and you have to come to places like this (Doncaster) and have a go. We had a couple of chances in the first half but where was the will, the desire in the second half? We must be the only side in the football leagues that stop when we go behind. We have only once come back after going a goal down and that is not good enough. It says a lot about the character of one or two players. I thought today that some were embarrassed by the ball, I don't need to name names because we all saw what happened."

"We have blown it and some of the lads in the dressing room will never have a better chance. It is unbelievable that other results went for us and a win here would still have left us with a chance in the last game of the season. We had nothing for a battle, no spunk and that's what sickens me. We were playing for a place in the Championship but you wouldn't think so in the last three or four games. If we had got a few draws we would have been bang in there going into the last game of the season with a chance. If you are not winning games you have to stop losing them. We brought a great following again and all you have to do is be committed to the cause."
