Cooper: We Got Caught Cold

10 February 2015

TOWN manager, Mark Cooper spoke to the media after defeat at Oldham.

On the defeat...
We got caught cold, we didn't start properly and we got punished for 15 mins of being cold but for the last 15 mins of the first half and definitely the second half is the best we've played this season. We had some really good chances, we dominated possession and I thought that was one of the best performances - I said to them "you wasted half an hour and gave a team a two-goal start." When you see the 60 minutes we just played, we didn't get what we deserved tonight.

On goals conceded...
It's a group of young players. They came out of the blocks, they're at home and we have to be better than that. You can't give the ball away cheap in those areas but to concede as cheaply as we did you're asking for trouble. We don't expect our players to give the ball away there.

On absentees...
Nathan Byrne was ill last night and this morning so didn't travel. Nathan Thompson had a relapse in training yesterday and was too much of a risk with Saturday in mind.
