Pitch abysmal fumes Baker.

Byline: By Bob Moreland

Blyth boss Paul Baker was today seeking talks with council officials after describing the playing surface at Croft Park as `a disgrace'.

Spartans hopes of a winning start to their UniBond League Premier Division campaign disappeared in a 1-0 home defeat against Bamber Bridge.

And while Baker insisted today that there were no excuses, he did say: "We just cannot play the sort of football I want our fans to see until the pitch has been improved.

"It was a disgrace on Saturday."

Baker, who takes his squad to Farsley Celtic tomorrow night, said that there were one or two bumps and bruises to sort out before he can name a team.

"One defeat doesn't mean panic stations," added Baker.

"The fact that Bamber Bridge came to spoil the game didn't help, but we know we let ourselves down."
