“Every time we had a positive spell they scored” – Tommy Wright


“We created enough chances to get something from the game”  reflected a disappointed Tommy Wright  ” that’s the positive  from the afternoon but defensively something’s got to change.

It’s the basics of defending that we’re not doing.   We didn’t show enough desire to keep a clean sheet and I was particularly disappointed with their first three goals.  The first was a header from a corner, the second had two of their players on their own in our six yard box and the third was from a throw-in.

They took their chances with some clinical finishing and we didn’t.   We probably should have had one before they scored as our lads all thought Nabil’s header was over the line, but every time we’ve had a positive spell they’ve scored.

That’s what good teams do  –   they weather the storms and come back.

To be honest with you I think they edged it today but it certainly wasn’t a 4-1 game.  They scored when it mattered and goals change games but if we had lost 4-3 I wouldn’t be feeling any better.

I think we need one or two new players to improve the depth of the squad, and if one or two come in then one or two will leave but that’s the way it is.  I’ve got high standards and we’ll get it right on the training pitch.

It’s been two hard fixtures.  We thought we were capable of getting six points although we would have been happy with four, but you can’t defend like we’ve done and expect to get results.”
