Tisdale - We Lost To A Good Team

Manager Paul Tisdale has admitted he was disappointed to see us lose to Rochdale yesterday, but he knows we were up against it because of how good a team they are.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game the gaffer said there were positives he could take from the game as we did have chances and on another day they wouldn't have gone begging and the score line could've been different.

'We were beaten by a very good team. I haven't seen a better team in our league than Rochdale. One goal separates the teams - it's a goal I'm particularly disappointed with because it's the last 30 seconds of the first half, and it was a poor goal to concede. Goals change games, and we had two glaring opportunities before they scored to put the ball in the net and we managed not to. So we had our chances.'

Disappointingly for Tisdale he says that we didn't quite have the energy levels he would've wanted to see from us in that game and he did feel three or four players in particular weren't up to their own standards, and ultimately you can't not be on your game when facing sides of the quality of Rochdale, and at best he believes we only deserved a draw but he can't really argue with them taking the win.

'It's not the end of the world, we're disappointed but we still could have got a draw and we had good pressure in the last half an hour. We just hit a dead end and we have to move onto the next game.'

The gaffer also picked out the continuing performance of young stopper Christy Pym who is deputising whilst Artur Krysiak is sidelined with injury. The 18 year old made his third appearance of the season and the third appearance of his career against Rochdale and he's on a decent little run himself at the moment.

Speaking specifically about the 18 year old Tisdale said that he felt he had performed very well again and did all that was asked of him in the game, pulling off some very good saves during the match.
