Manager Wayne Burnett and first team coach Darren Currie have given their usual after match summations, this time following the two nil loss to Leyton Orient.

Starting with Wayne Burnett, in quotes carried by London24 the gaffer admitted that Orient just had too much quality for us on the night, but he did feel that the second goal killed our chances of getting back into it.

‘We caused our own problems with four and a half minutes gone. We play a silly straight ball and it gets cut out and we are 1-0 down. But I felt at 1-0 we were slightly getting back into the game a little and then I felt we had a foul on the edge of the box, not given, and they have gone up the other end, got a corner and scored and that is fine margins isn’t it?’

Burnett goes on to say that the second goal killed it really, and especially coming with 20 minutes to go, it just gave us too much to do unfortunately but he was relatively pleased with the double full debuts of Doidge and Yusuff, but he admits they did struggle against experienced defenders but they’ll learn from it and be better for it moving forward.

‘We have come up against players that were slightly too good for us on the night, I’m not making excuses but we are what we are. Doidge and Yusuff were playing against a back four that has played in League One and got into the play offs, but I thought they gave a good account of themselves.’

As for Currie giving his interview to the official site, he admitted his disappointment fell in us not taking the chances we created but he knows he couldn’t fault the work ethic of the players again.

‘As always they gave everything, but we were again disappointing in front of goal, we missed some good opportunities, if you don’t take those, it’s hard to win football matches.’

Currie did believe though that the performance and the fact we are still creating those chances means we can move forward to the Accrington game with confidence, looking to turn the results around and that will be exactly what they hope to do.
