Dunne - We Let The Game Get Away From Us

Midfielder Pulls No Punches After Defeat

24 March 2018

James Dunne was quick to admit that Town switched off against Exeter City and paid the ultimate price.

Kaiyne Woolery gave the visitors a thoroughly deserved lead at St James Park, but Phil Brown's side never kicked on and three straight goals handed Exeter all three points.

And Dunne accepted that he and his team-mates got a little bit too comfortable after going a goal up.

"Once we got the goal we got a bit comfortable, they got the goal back, changed their shape and that changed the game," he said.

"They got the penalty, went 2-1 up and we had a couple of half chances in the second-half and didn't take them.

"They got on the break and got the third goal and the game was over then.

"Exeter kept their shape well and it was up to us to break them down and we didn't.

"We didn't get enough crosses in today and the third goal took the air out of us.

"The boy (Jayden) Stockley did well for them today, he got hold of it, laid it out and caused us a lot of problems.

"There's eight games left and still a lot of points to play for so we'll take it game-by-game.

"All we are worried about now is Morecambe on Friday."
