Staines Town manager Marcus Gayle feels his side could learn a thing or two from Warta Poznan following the Poles' 2-1 pre-season victory at the beginning of the week.
The Swans were pegged back by slick passing and some decent "keep ball" as the side from Poland's second tier were able to edge the Blue Square Bet South outfit.
Gayle believes the two teams had lined up similarly on the day, but that in the end it was the opposition who were able to make the most of the ball.
"They [Warta] were patient, thoughtful in possession and played the same system as us with a lone striker, two wide men and three midfielders," Gayle told Get Surrey.
"My players would have learned a lot about how to look after the ball and I was disappointed we didn't stick to our game-plan of playing the ball simply.
"I am teaching them to play two and three-touch football and some of them took more and looked too eager to impress."
