First team coach Darren Currie has given his after match reaction following the three nil loss to Northampton Town yesterday.

It certainly wasn’t the way we wanted to go into the final game of the season against Cheltenham Town, and speaking to the Official Site Currie admitted that very little on the day actually went to plan.

‘The performance wasn’t what we would expect, we worked on a system and given players a chance who maybe haven’t had enough minutes this season and it was a really disappointing result.’

The match was effectively over in the first half, and Northampton were fighting for their lives because their League Two status for next season isn’t yet confirmed given where they sit in the table and even the changes we made at half time just didn’t speak much from us really, which left Currie ruing that we ‘weren’t the best in the creative department’ over the course of 90 minutes, and those chances we did create we just didn’t do enough with.

The disappointing thing for Currie is he doesn’t believe the players really stuck to the game plan we had and they didn’t recreate what we had been working on all week during training, but that has been something that has irked the management team for a while now as Currie says that producing that on the pitch is something ‘they haven’t done in the last two home games.’

Whilst being safe and having shown improvement on last season can be considered a positive, Currie said that everybody was down and disappointed in the dressing room after the game because they were really hoping to secure another home win but with our recent form the players know they have let themselves down.

‘We must have said it a hundred times this week, we knew what to expect, they’re fighting for their lives and we made the boys thoroughly prepare for what was coming our way. But even so, when you’re out there you’ve got to take on board instruction and deal with what’s coming at you.’
