Following on from the very disappointing loss to bottom placed Torquay United on Monday, manager Paul Tisdale has said we can't reflect too much on the result or the missed opportunity to secure our League Two status this season, we must prepare for our next game and make that count instead.
Despite taking the early lead through Scot Bennett, Torquay rallied in the second half and hit two goals in quick succession to give them the most unlikely of lifelines as they are adrift in bottom place.
Speaking to the Official Site following the game, the manager explained that he was obviously disappointed, but now is not the point to lose focus on the challenge we face.
'You'd be surprised if I wasn't disappointed and I am. It was a game we were desperate to win, but we didn't play well enough and we've lost. I'm disappointed, and I have to temper that with thoughts of the last two games. As much as it hurts and I'm upset and disappointed, I have to make sure that we keep our focus and togetherness going into the final two games.'
Tisdale goes on to say that this Easter weekend has pretty much summed up our season really, because he feels in the Chesterfield game we looked like a team capable of having a serious attempt at promotion, and he feels we should've won that game easily instead of just picking up a point, and against Torquay we looked like a team sitting exactly where we are in the table.
It doesn't get any easier when we face unbeaten Scunthorpe though. Their new manager Russ Wilcox has bizarrely still not overseen a loss since taking charge of them earlier in the season and they have of course regained their place at the top of the table and want the title and a win against us would give them that, and a draw should secure automatic promotion for them...we just have to hope that pressure counts and we can take advantage of that, but to do that we need to perform ourselves.
On that score, being one of only four team to have beaten them this season, when we hammered them at Glanford Park, we know we can do it, and it'll take that kind of showing again.
