Now the club are set for further discussions at a board meeting this week. A statement on the club's website, www.pnefc.co.uk read: "The chairman and the directors don't believe that following a game, when there is a lot of emotion about, that it is the right time to make a statement or speak directly to the press.
"However, they were very disappointed with the performance and result at Hull City and will be discussing the team's results so far this season at a board meeting that was already scheduled to take place later on next week.
