Adams: We were beaten by a good side

7 September 2014

Manager Micky Adams felt that even though the team could have performed better to get something out of the game, they were beaten by a very good side who are top of the table for a reason.


Speaking to the press after the match, Micky said: “We were beaten by a good side there’s no doubt about that. I think Peterborough have good player’s, if you give them time on the ball they are going to hurt you.


“We’ve got to look back at that and be disappointed with the goals we’ve conceded. They were down to a lack of communication, but we had our moments. It’s not as if we came here and were under an enormous amount of pressure.

“I felt when they scored their first goal the crowd was quiet, trust us to give them a lift, but there were some positives to come out of it; Byron Moore got 50 minutes under his belt and Jordan Slew got his first goal, he was unlucky to get his second.

“We’ve had our moments, but we always look at what we could have done better and at times we certainly should have done that.”

Micky Adams feels that his side are conceding too many goals, but he is trying hard to stop the rot and the wins will come.

He said: “We’ve been trying all sorts of combinations to concede less goals and we’ve tried another one again today.

“All we can ever do is work on the training ground, we’re working extremely hard this week.

“We’ve got to go again next week, we’ve got an important match next Saturday that’s important for our supporters and it’s important for us. We need a win, we’ve got to scrape one from somewhere.

“I’m obviously disappointed, when goals are flying into your goal it deflates everyone, the supporters, the players, but today was difficult because as they got rid of one player they bought some more in.

“It was always a tough task, but I thought we competed well and kept on going right to the death.”

Micky Adams feels that if they are to get out of their recent slump, the fans will be an important factor and need to show their support to the players.

He explained: “I’d like to say thanks to the supporters who were here, I appreciate their support and we’re going to need them more than ever now.”
