I’m massively disappointed, I have to be big and say congrats to them, they deserved their win. They had more energy and we didn’t show the character to break them down.
“It’s disappointing to lose any game, whether that’s pre-season, league or cup. The whole club needs to work out how to go forward, there’s a losing mentality at the minute.
“We need a clean sweep of the mind-set and get some people to change. I take full responsibility and it’s my place to make sure that changes. We’re not in a situation where we can feel sorry for ourselves.”
“We’ll assess Scowen, he was in tears at one point. We had a decision to make whether we took him off or left him on, and I wanted to get him off and assessed even though it was important for him to be on.
“Marley Watkins today played with an injury so fair play to him. Conor (Hourihane) was playing a week too early and Lloyd Isgrove played with a shoulder injury as well. That’s three players that have put their bodies on the line for the club and that’s what we need.”
“I apologise from myself and the players. Nobody wants to see their club get giant killed. I also say thank you, I understand they’re upset but they could be more disruptive and they haven’t been. I will be fighting till the end to get this back for them.”
