The Dutch trainer expressed disappointment at his side’s 2-0 loss at the hands of John van den Brom’s men and admitted that his troops made too many mistakes.
Heracles Almelo head coach, Peter Bosz, was extremely disappointed at his side’s 2-0 loss against Vitesse Arnhem at GelreDome Stadion on Friday, March 16.
Although the Heraclieden enjoyed greater ball possession in the opening half, they failed to threaten the home side’s defence.
The Arnhem outfit took full advantage of the visiting side’s mistakes in the midfield and took the lead in the 23rd minute through Wilfried Bony.
To add more to the their misery, the Heraclieden goalkeeper, Remko Pasveer, received his marching orders moments before the half-time break after bringing down Renato Ibarra in the penalty area.
With a man down, the visiting side never really managed to dominate proceedings at GelreDome Stadion in the second-half.
Ibarra scored a screamer from the edge of the box to double his side’s advantage in the 68th minute,.
Despite having further opportunities, the home side failed to add any further goals and the match ended in a 2-0 win.
The Dutch mentor has admitted that his side made too many mistakes and the Arnhem outfit reacted impressively.
“We made far too many careless mistakes, especially losing the ball too frequently inside our own half. Vitesse reacted well, and scored goals”, Bosz said while talking to journalists.
The former De Graafschap coach then went on to insist that his side is in no need of plan B.
“With our way of football and tactics, we have secured many points. With the same game we have achieved great results. So I do not think that we should now start thinking about having a plan B”, Bosz added.
Bosz, however, is optimistic about his side’s chances of participating in the UEFA Europa League play-offs at the end of the ongoing campaign.
“We must be realistic. Let’s see, what the teams have to offer this weekend that are currently beneath us in the table”, Bosz concluded.
