McEveley - Mountain to climb

19 January 2014

JAY McEveley says that Town gave themselves a mountain to climb after conceding sloppy goals against Gillingham.

Speaking after Swindon's 2-0 defeat at the Priestfield Stadium, the defender pulled no punches in his assessment of the atmosphere in the dressing room post-match.

"Disappointment and frustation," he said. "Disappointed because, yet again we've conceded sloppy goals. (The first goal was just a) ball in to the box and a free header - it can't happen. It puts us on the back foot. In the second half we were on top. You have to put those chances away and we didn't. We're giving ourselves a mountain to climb and it's stupid. It's happened too many times now.

"We seem to be saying the same things every week. We're getting sick and tired of it. It's very disappointing and we need to get back to winning ways. It's time to kick on now."

Finally, McEveley reflected on a personal high, having returned from a recent injury.

"It's nice to be back sooner than expected," he admitted. "I thought the injury was worse than it was so I was able to come back and play 90 minutes."
