AFC Wimbledon boss Neal Ardley refused to criticise his tactics after their 1-0 loss to Bury, instead he blamed a lack of quality.

Their fourth consecutive defeat arrived thanks to a last-gasp winner after AFC Wimbledon had spurned plenty of chances to take lead with Danny Hylton the chief offender as he failed to find a way past Brian Jensen.

"I don't think there's anything tactically that we're doing wrong at the moment, it's individual errors and people switching off that is killing us," he said.

"It's not as if we're not creating chances it's just a lack of quality in there. As a manager all you can do is get your head down and keep working with the players, hoping it will turn.

"I'd be stunned if anyone thought that was a fair result. I felt like that was a smash and grab.

"Most of their shots came in the last 15 minutes when we lost our way but other than that I thought we were the better team.

I don't know what to say to you. The performance levels of the team were good but we've lost a game of football. I can't take any consolation from it.

"I'm trying to put an attacking team together that tries to score goals. If I haven't got the personnel to do it then that's my fault in recruitment."
