Darren Moore said Wednesday didn’t deserve to take anything from today’s woeful display at bottom-of-the-table Forest Green Rovers.
Speaking after the 1-0 defeat, a second reverse in three outings to further dent our automatic promotion push, Moore said: “From our perspective we can have no complaints because we didn’t do enough in the game.
“We just didn’t have the right levels. We weren’t clean enough with the ball, we didn’t execute passages of play well enough and didn’t get the ball into dangerous zones enough to threaten them.
“If you don’t do those things then how can you win the game.
“In the midweek defeat at Barnsley the performance was there but today it wasn’t. It wasn’t good enough but we have another game at Cheltenham on Wednesday and we will be looking to put in a performance.”
He added: “For the first time this season we’ve lost back-to-back games so we’re in the unusual position of looking for a response. The only way we can do that is by everybody sticking together, realising today that we weren’t good enough and that, in football, if you don’t apply yourselves right then that’s what you get.”
Moore also went across to applaud the sellout Wednesday section of the crowd at the end of the game and said he wanted to get across the message that while it was a disappointing result it’s important that everyone connected with the club stays together in the run-in to the end of the season.
