The 45-year-old former Oldham manager said: ‘It was difficult to take, we played some really good football at times, we missed the penalty and the rebound and a good chance towards the end as well, I wasn’t too displeased with the team, I thought they tried to play the way we wanted to play.’ 

‘With the quality that’s in this team, especially in the forward line you’d expect a couple of goals from that, but today wasn’t to be.’

Looking towards Salford’s next game at home to Southend on Tuesday Scholes said: ‘If we play a similar type of way that we played tonight, I think we’ll be ok.’
