Hussey Post Crawley Town

Defender Shares His Frustration With Draw

2 April 2018

Chris Hussey spoke to members of the local media in the wake of our 1-1 draw with Crawley Town earlier today.

Jimmy Smith gave the hosts a first-half lead before Marc Richards snatched a point with a late, late equaliser.

"In a way we are frustrated. They snuck a goal in the first-half and it has been the story of our season giving away sloppy goals," Hussey said.

"The Gaffer has come in and has tried to get us to keep clean sheets and, to an extent, we have got better.

"We went hell for leather again to get the three points.

"It was clear that they tried to lock me and Tails (Matty Taylor) down and quite a few teams have tried to do that.

"It is not good enough, we know that and we'll keep going. 

"Our reaction in the second-half was chalk and cheese compared to the first.

"We have got to show character now, a bit of experience and we have got to do something in the next five or six games."

"We are frustrated that we drew at home to Morecambe and it is a bit of a dip, but it is not the be all and end all as we know where we need to get to.

"You respect the point, that's two draws on the bounce and it is a point gained but, at the same time, it is two points dropped.

"We'll see how valuable that point is come the end of the season.

"With the previous manager we would have either won or lost these last two games, but the new Gaffer has got a happy medium into us and we'll see how valuable these two points are.

"We have got to show character now, a bit of experience and we have got to do something in the next five or six games.

"We'll take it a game at a time and we'll see where we are come the end of the season."
