LEE CLARK held his hands up after his new-look Town side were held to an opening-day League I draw by promoted Bury.
We were poor, and Im disappointed by all aspects of that performance, said the Galpharm manager, who handed full debuts to Calum Woods, Oscar Gobern, Anton Robinson and Donal McDermott and brought new recruit Tommy Miller off the bench when Robinson was forced off with a hamstring injury in the 29th minute.
We lacked tempo both with and without the ball, we didnt press enough and we didnt force Bury into any errors high up the pitch.
We allowed them too much time on the ball, we looked laboured when we were on the ball and there was no aggressive running off the ball.
Our passing wasnt quick enough and we didnt test their keeper enough.
There is a lot of work to be done, but well erase the frailties we had today.
"Surveying the pattern of the game, the boss continued: They had two shots, one blocked and one over the bar, in the opening half minute.
We only had one real attempt in the first half, when the keeper had to make a save from Tommy Miller.
In the second half we huffed and puffed, and Lee Novak (on for McDermott in the 52nd minute) gave us energy and a better work ethic.
But the sloppy goal we gave away sums up the performance.
Bury manager Richie Barker, whose line-up included ex-Town defenders Efe Sodje and Joe Skarz, said: Its very difficult to pick anybody who didnt do their job or who didnt work as hard as they could do.
I dont think many teams will come from behind and nick a point here because theyve got some excellent players.
We are delighted, but on the flip side I thought we created enough chances to get something else out of it, so in that sense, were probably a little bit disappointed.
