Following Port Vale’s 3-0 defeat to Swindon Town at the weekend, we spoke to manager Neil Aspin to gather his views on the performance.
A goalless first-half then saw the Valiants concede three goals in the second-half where Matt Taylor, Paul Mullin and Kellan Gordon secured all three points for the Robins.
The gaffer was quick to express his disappointment with the loss as well as the overall performance.
He said: “It was a bad performance.
“We can’t take anything good from that game, I won’t address it any other way. Defensively, we were okay in the first-half but we didn’t create anything.
“In the second, once we conceded, there was only one team that were going to win the game so it was a poor performance and I feel we have the supporters down.
“We have to be better in the remaining games.”
Despite high-flying Swindon looking excellent away from home, Aspin felt that his side should have performed better for the supporters at the weekend. But, is eager for his side to bounce back for the next game against Oxford United.
“I expected a tough game but they are all tough in this league,” said the gaffer.
“They will all be tough because where we are in the league but we should have been better than that today. I’m not bothered of who we are against, you shouldn’t be losing the way we did on Saturday.
“There was nothing for the supporters to take home today so all the hard week in the last three weeks we have thrown away today. We have to start again."
