Rigino Cicilia Reflects On Northampton

13 December 2016

Vale continue with their Christmas fixtures and are looking to their next game after losing to Northampton town 3-2 last weekend at Vale Park.

The Valiants went behind after a first half header by Gabriel Zakuani, but they spurred on a comeback through Ryan Taylor.

Goals from Sam Hoskins and Paul Anderson put the visitors back into the lead but Rigino Cicilia’s last minute goal wasn’t enough to earn Vale a point.

Valiants striker, Rigino Cicilia thought that Vale played better than Northampton Town throughout the game but were unable to get the result.

“It’s very disappointing I mean I can see throughout the game we were the better team so it’s unfortunate that we lost the game so it’s very hard,” said the striker.

“We were searching for the second after we got the first and it didn’t happen and sometimes football goes like that.”

And the striker thinks the reason they took the loss was because they were unable to take their chances.

“It was very disappointing, I think we were better than them," said Cicilia. 

“They got the goal but I thought we were better than them we didn’t take our chances.

“It was hard but noting changed when they scored we just had to keep going.” 

Cicilia thinks that he has been playing well in recent weeks, and thanks the support of the fans, but the side must swap focus and look towards next weekend’s game against Wimbledon.

“I’m playing well the supporters support the whole team including me but today we should win so it’s very hard to take this loss,” said the in-form striker.

“Next game we focus on Wimbledon and try and get three points, this game is gone and it’s too bad but we have to kick on.”

“I’ve worked hard and I’m very happy to be in the team and will do my best, I really like when I hear the chants of my name.”
