Dion Conroy could not hide his disappointment in the wake of Town’s 1-0 loss to Walsall on Easter Monday, although the defender is now firmly focussed on the final two games of the season.
Joe Edwards’ late strike inflicted a damaging defeat on The Reds yesterday and they will now have to win their two remaining fixtures in order to stand a fighting chance of staying up.
However, Conroy felt his side were unfortunate to be on the losing side at the Bescot Stadium and he’s confident about Town’s chances of getting the job done.
“All the boys are a bit disappointed but we know now that we have to win the next two games, so nothing much has really changed,” he said.
“We’ve got to win both games and that’s it.
“We didn’t deserve to lose on Monday. We had chances, they didn’t have too many in the second-half and I thought we played well.
“They had one shot and that was it.
“There was a period in the second-half where it looked like we were going to get a couple and it didn’t look like we were going to concede. We were going for it and we were creating chances so it was disappointing to concede how we did.
“We’ll go again.
“We’ll keep going, we’ll keep working hard in training and we’ll hopefully get the three points on Saturday and then move on to the following Sunday.
“It was tough to take. We were on top of them and when you concede a goal like that late in the game, it is hard to keep the momentum going but all the boys kept trying.
“We’re not focussing on the pressure. We just want to work hard, we want to get the win and that’s it.
“We’ve got to deal with the pressure and get the three points on Saturday.”
The Town faithful were in fine voice at Walsall and Conroy is hoping for similar backing this Saturday at The County Ground.
“The fans were amazing throughout the whole game and it was like we had a twelfth man,” he added.
“They are going to be vital for us on Saturday and against Charlton.
“We’ve got two big games coming up and hopefully we can get the three points.”
