Dillon slams Taylor

Next Story

Aldershot manager Kevin Dillon criticised counterpart Peter Taylor in the aftermath of his side's 2-1 defeat to Bradford at Valley Parade.

Dillon was unhappy at some of the challenges put in by Bradford players on his team as he saw goals from James Hanson and Omar Daley cancel out Anthony Straker's eighth-minute opener. The Shots chief exchanged angry words on the touchline with Taylor after debutant Luke Oliver challenged keeper Mikhael Jaimez-Ruiz and goalscorer Hanson fouled Aaron Brown.

And Dillon made his feelings clear afterwards by saying Taylor had accused his players of exaggerating their injuries. He said: "It wasn't nice when you get their manager accusing our players of feigning injury. He should keep his opinions to himself if they are about our players. I didn't expect that from him and hopefully it won't happen again."

He added: "A lot of my players are nursing bruises, but they will feel good about their performance. You can put up with a defeat when you have got as good a performance as that."
