Cooper: It Could Have Gone Either Way

29 July 2014

TOWN Manager Mark Cooper spoke to the media after his side's 2-1 defeat at home to Leeds United.

On the result...
I thought we did alright. In spells we had a lot of possession, we need to work on being more potent and making the most of possession. Let's not forget, we're playing against a good Championship team and we did alright. We dominated a lot of the ball and you could see the effect Hockaday's had on them (Leeds). They gave us the respect of closing us down for the whole game. It was a tight game and it could have gone either way.

On the front pairing...
Michael Smith works his socks off - it's not an easy evening marking him. He's a young lad we're working with and he'll get better and better. They're very similar: both big, mobile centre forwards so we've got work to do with them as a partnership.

On the build-up to the new season...
We need to keep working hard and make sure we're a threat at one end of the pitch and that we tighten up at the other end.
