Manager Wayne Burnett and striker Christian Doidge have both spoken following the defeat to Luton Town in midweek.

A three one defeat at Kenilworth Road left the manager frustrated as he blamed individual errors for our undoing when he spoke to the Official Site.

‘For 40 minutes in the first half, we probably had the more shots on target and didn’t really look in much danger, but we caused our own problems. We’re making mistakes and individual errors and they’re costing us. I’m the manager and the buck stops with me, but the boys haven’t stopped working and they work incredibly hard, but we could spend 50 hours a week on the training pitch and you can’t legislate for those errors. It’s incredibly frustrating because I know what these players are capable of.’

The manager goes on to say that we need to better clearly and we need to start performing well enough and consistently enough to create our own luck in games and he knows that if things don’t change for us we are quickly going to find ourselves in a relegation dog fight and he appreciates some would say we are already there.

‘Both Matt Partridge and Billy Bingham come into the team and worked really hard, I just think collectively we need to do better as a team. I think we have to go to Wycombe with a positive attitude, the disappointing thing for me is that we are not playing badly, we’re just causing our own downfall at the moment.’

Burnett goes on to repeat that for the 40 minutes against Luton there was little in the game until we made the error and if he thought we were hopeless he’d admit it and maybe if we were being ripped apart and without a hope it would be easier to assess, but the fact is we need to tweak the individual errors and that is the main frustration.

Of course there was a goal to our name in the game, and it went for Christian Doidge who scored his first goal for us in the match.

Speaking himself after the game, the player admitted that he couldn’t not let the result overshadow his own pleasure and he wishes the goal had come in better circumstances where he could’ve really celebrated it.

‘I really enjoyed scoring my first goal, I just wish I could’ve celebrated to be honest. It’s not about my goal though, it’s about the result, so I’m disappointed.’
