Cooper: We gave them 2 goals

22 February 2014

TOWN Manager Mark Cooper spoke to the media after defeat at Leyton Orient

On the result...
I didn't think there was too much danger in the first half then a ridiculous tackle gives them a penalty and they go in at half time in the ascendency. In the second half, for the first 20 minutes we were not very good. When the game is over at 2-0 we start to play a bit. We didn't threaten their goal but, frustrating as it is, we have a way to play and we have to stick to it. You can't make two challenges in the box like we did and expect to win games. We've given them two goals. When you do that they take advantage. We got to 43 mins then go in 1-0 down and their tails are up. 

On penalties conceded...
The Orient winger is facing the stand for the first one and our defender makes a tackle and then Troy got himself in a miuddle and rugby tackled the guy in the box. 

On the team selection...
It was difficult with the personnel we had to change the style. We had a depleted squad but we're not looking for excuses. 

On Wes Foderingham...
Wes has had as bit of a tight hip. Then in the warm-up he felt something and we decided that Ty had to come on. We'll assess him tomorrow and see how we go.
