Ian Bogie disappointed with Gateshead's FA Trophy exit

Gateshead manager Ian Bogie was bitterly disappointed with the nature of his team's FA Trophy exit at the weekend.

The Tynesiders, recent 2-1 victors at high-flying York in the league, failed to fire in a 2-0 defeat to Luton Town - much to Bogie's obvious frustration.

"The players travel on a top class coach and stay in good hotels so the preparation for games is excellent," Bogie told his club's official website.

"It was a really disappointing day. We didn't show enough quality and fight and Luton won all the second balls.

"We never got out the traps and were second best. Luton pressed us all over the park and didn't let us play and we created very little.

"We got to the quarter-final of the FA Trophy for the second year running and we could certainly have had a more favourable draw.

"But to produce such a poor performance in such a big game was a huge disappointment and we have to be more consistent.

"We were excellent at York and are a match for anyone when we perform to our ability, but we have to do that on a regular basis if we're to make the play-offs."

Gateshead, lying ninth on the Blue Square Bet Premier table, will look to revive their play-off bid when they host 15th-placed Ebbsfleet on Saturday.
