Smith Reflects On County Defeat

Striker On Notts And Stevenage

14 September 2017

Harry Smith felt Town deserved at least a point from their trip to Notts County on Tuesday night.

The Reds produced a spirited display but were undone by a Jon Stead penalty, and Smith was of the opinion that his side could count themselves unfortunate to leave Meadow Lane empty handed.

"It is dissapointing that a decision we're not sure is the right one has decided the game," he said.

"They are the fine margins in this league and unfortunately it just wasn't to be for us on Tuesday night.

"They are a tough team, they are well drilled and they will be up there I'm sure this season. It was one of the tougher games we'll have.

"I thought we were quite unlucky not to grab something towards the end.

"We've ultimately lost the game so you can't take too much encouragement, but we had a few chances, we hit the post, I had one tipped over and again it is just fine margins."

Smith was introduced midway through the second-half and impressed, and the striker was happy with his showing.

"I thought I put myself about a bit and I was unlucky not to score," he added.

"I had one ruled out for offside, I'm not sure about it myself but the lads said it was tight and they thought it might have just been off.

"Overall, I'm happy but we lost the game so it was a dissapointing night."

Finally, Smith is confident that Town can finally deliver a home win when they take on Stevenage at The County Ground this Saturday. 

"They are the fine margins in this league and unfortunately it just wasn't to be for us on Tuesday night. They are a tough team, they are well drilled and they will be up there I'm sure this season. It was one of the tougher games we'll have."

"We've just got to do what we did against Luton, do what we did against Crawley in the opening half-hour and I'm sure we'll get the right result," he continued.

"Hopefully the fans back us in numbers and we get that first home win.

"I'm not sure what has happened with the home form but we could have been out of sight against Crawley after the opening half-hour.

"If we put away our chances, which I'm sure we will, then we'll put it right on Saturday."
