Cooper: A Bad Evening

3 March 2015

MARK Cooper spoke to the media in the wake of the home defeat at the hands of Gillingham.

On the result...
It was one of those evenings where we just had too many players under par and no matter what you try it wasn't good enough. We were totally under par, we tried to change it, freshen the strikers up and did what we could but it was just a bad evening.

On goals conceded...
Gillingham started at a real high tempo but we came into the game and had some good chances and we seemed to be getting control of the game. We concede a goal and it puts us on the back foot. We have enough opportunities to put the ball in the right areas and it didn't happen. (The second goal is a) Really poor goal from our point of view. It puts us in a bad position just after half time. We tried to have a gamble but I don't think we'd have scored had we been sat here until tomorrow night.

Looking ahead...
It's difficult when the pressure is on and when there's lots of negativity, the young players have to roll their sleeves up and, somewhere along the line, they have to mature.
