VIDEO: Thompson Left Frustrated By Peterborough Defeat

23 January 2017

Nathan Thompson admitted his frustration in the wake of Town’s 1-0 defeat to Peterborough United at The County Ground on Saturday.

Despite the visitors having the better of the chances, the Reds enjoyed plenty of possession in the first-half and looked dangerous going forward without ever really challenging Luke McGee in the Posh goal.

However, Chris Forrester’s strike just after half-time proved to be the only goal of the game and Thompson was left to rue his side’s lack of a clinical edge in the final-third.

“I felt it was a very scrappy affair and it was a flip of a coin really, either team could have gone on to win it,” he told Town’s Official YouTube channel exclusively.

“We weren’t clinical enough when we needed to be and they obviously finished the chance they had, so it was a disappointing result in the end especially after last weekend’s performance (away at Bolton Wanderers). 

“I felt there was a renewed energy in the team and I felt we could go and get another three points on Saturday and start that push up the league, but it wasn’t meant to be.

“I’ve said in the dressing room that we’ve got two big, big games coming up and although Bristol Rovers and Oxford United only account for three points each, they are still huge games in the calendar for this club.

“We can now focus on those two games and look to start climbing that table.”
