Kerr was left to moan about the obtuseness of his men before objective as they were additionally hauled into the transfer mess, being not able to take their risks and beat Chippa.

"We were the cause all our own problems. We realized they planned to come and shield, perhaps split away and grab an objective. Thus, we realized we must show restraint.

"I shared with them [Swallows' players] during the week that you must be astute to beat the centrebacks at Chippa.

"We took the game to them and I can't blame the players for that. They knew how enormous this game was. However, once more, decision-production in and around the punishment region has harmed the club.

"We've been in a position where we get wide, we get into the container, however there's nothing from it. Indeed, even the passes into the case were not to our players. It was simply confident football, trusting that somebody will get to its furthest limit.

"In instructional meetings, the manner in which we play and the manner in which we train, the possibilities we make and the possibilities we score are inconceivable."

Swallows were consigned from the first class in 2014-2015, and dropped to the extent that the fourth-level before their ongoing possession restored the group and directed them back to the Premiership as National First Division champions in 2019-2020.
