'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Tisdale - We Should've Got Something From That

Manager Paul Tisdale has said following the loss to Cheltenham that he's bitterly frustrated because we could have won the game, let alone drawn level.

Former player Jamie Cureton netted the winner after only 13 minutes of the game, and despite our second half performance being far more dominating we just couldn't find a way through to the net with their keeper pulling off a number of saves in the game.

Speaking to the Official Site after the final whistle blew, the gaffer explained.

'It's frustrating because we've lost a match that I don't think we deserved to lose. Against Chesterfield we were beaten by a better and more efficient team, today we certainly deserved something more from the game. I'm disappointed we didn't win it, let alone get a draw.'

Tisdale goes on the explain that it's difficult to actually blame the players or suggest clearly obvious things from the game that would've turned it in our favour as he says they are playing with plenty of guts, a good determination and the quality is good as well - especially the younger players stepping up to this level and showing they can compete, so there are many positives he can take despite the score line, but he knows in football the bottom line are results and that is ultimately what defines and separates teams in a league.

Goes without saying results are also what determine whether you have a successful or troubling campaign.

His encouragement to the team now ahead of our next match will be to keep believing in themselves and chalk that one down to football being football, because they have to keep going because he more than feels there is a good team here, we just now need more results to prove it.

With all of that said though, he does feel Cureton's goal was soft and the defence will take the blame for that, just as the strikers will for not finding the net, so a bit of self introspection he feels is required by the players, but not so much so that it's doom and gloom.
